  1. A few days ago I got my Aug. 2013 copy of PCWorld. It is the last print copy PCworld will ever make. They are going digital. You will use your computer to read PCWorld.
    Does anybody think, because this is the last issue, that it might be worth something someday?
    I'm thinking about putting it in gallon zip lock bag. Just in case.

    As long as you haven't opened it to read it, left untouched (like a virgin) would be best.

    Eh, it will have some value, but all magazines will go digital someday, thus making old print magazines worth more.

    Yeah, but not until 20 years or so, if then.

    I did look at a few pages. but I didn't break the spine, and it didn't come in a plastic cover. So I didn't open any packaging.

    That's okay. I'll still need money when I'm 87 ;0)

    Another end of an era!

    Personally, right now I'm thinking more about the changes to the world as we knew it rather than profiting from them. I have spent countless hours in kiosk-shops reading such mags so as to decide whether they were worth buying...especially after I had already read the interesting articles...
