The quality, depth and breadth of articles in MSDN Magazine really seems to have ramped up a notch or two in recent years. Maybe it's just me slipping behind the times a little as I struggle to keep on top of the slew of new technologies coming out of Redmond, but these days I'm more likely to go "ooh!" than "meh!" on seeing the list of contents of each issue that thuds onto my doormat.
And it's still available for a mere $25 a year to international MSDN subscribers - that's like a quid an issue these days!
