I like the fact that your magazine is not jammed packed with manufacturer’s marketing and sales ads. I understand having some but not as many as your competitor (HTM). I enjoy the movie reviews, which I found to be much more accurate than others (HTM). And lastly, I am a fellow Hungarian like Gary, heck we even share the same fascination for high-tech gadgets.
