I always marvel at how they manage to get good stories before the internet does...

Excellent magazine. I find myself flipping through my old copies, gleaning tidbits I've skipped over. It's primarily techy stuff but does a good job venturing into other areas.
Wired: Packed with all kinds of notes, facts, reviews, and very well written articles. Tired: Every other page is an ad and many of the ads are disguised as articles...Sorry Wired, you lose a star here.
Pro: I've been a subscriber since 2000. Consistently thought provoking because it pulls my inner-nerd-child self into the bigger world of politics, crime, economics and sociology. Very serendipity because I never know what's in the issue by just looking at the cover.
Con: most of the adds are flashy, but fail to impel me to buy the products. Not sure why...
Every feature article is like a well-written short story full of details about the main characters, the events and the causes that led to such events. No matter what the article's subject is, it will keep you reading until it's over.
The shorter news and updates on tech and style keep you up-to-speed with the rest of the world. The smart graphics make the reading experience even more engaging.
Great mix of interesting articles on a variety of topics. Humorous and series subjects. Introduces readers to new things they may have never have heard of, like Hunch!
Cons: Some useless sections, reviews usually aren't very interesting. Hypes up things that aren't worth it.
Articles span a wide variety of subject bases, not just "techie" material, and are well written. Thr graphics and photograpahy are always impressive.One of the better publications I've subscribed to.
Cons: Apple worshipers. They hold everything Apple high and mighty.
Best magazine I have ever read in along time. Very smart writers. Interesting articles. Fantastic photography and design. Also, the magazine refered me to Hunch. Very good sense of humor.
Cons: Can make overly ambitious predictions about the technological world. The product reviews are not very helpful
Great content articles, very interesting and well written. Monthly elements have a great sense of humor. All in all a great magazine.
Cons: Too many ads, feature stories are often too long and are continued in the back of the magazine, this exceeds my attention span
Just spastic enough in what they cover to keep me satisfied and complaining enough that I still feel cool.
Cons: I don't know why WiredUK exists. The coverage is good in both but the stories seem interchangeable. Just because there an extra 'u' in colour doesn't make it different!
Design is inspiring; photography is excellent; articles are interesting and well-written; entire magazine exudes a fun, informative personality; subscriptions are available at a low price.
Cons: Sorry, but none as far as I'm concerned. I find Wired to be an exemplary publication.
Great coverage of all things tech & science related. WiredScience won a webby as best science blog. Some strong staff writers.
Cons: Commenting system is archaic; approximately 50% of commenters on blogs more interested in flaming/trolling/expressing undying loyalty to [COMPANY] than conversing.
Beautiful design and use of spot colors. Longer 'feature' articles are usually insightful and in-depth. That back-page 'future item' thing is usually cool.
Cons: Irritatingly prone to hyperbole. Ads galore. Not sure the magazine can get any slimmer without disappearing entirely.
