5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading in the information age 3 Nov 2010
2600 is a great source of information and opinion, whether or not you consider yourself to be a hacker.

The magazine takes an in-depth look at the information and communications technology which has become an integral part of our lives. While some articles require a level of technical expertise (it'll help if you know your way around a Linux distribution and a programming language or two), much of the information is accessible to anyone with reasonable computing proficiency.

Where 2600 really excels is in its examination of the effects of technology on society. Issues including Wikileaks, intellectual property law, privacy, data protection and media manipulation are frequent themes, and the magazine provides a platform for a range of views which sometimes aren't heard in the mainstream media.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a subscription option. 1 Nov 2010
By James T. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com

I have read 2600 off and on for more than 17 years now. I read this before I even owned a computer, learned a few tricks to call home for free when I was short on change but needed a ride. Glad to see they have jumped into the new format. But they really need to get a subscription going.

I've always had issues locating copies of 2600 magazine at the local book stores. I'm glad it's available for the kindle. My only complaint is that I can't have it as a subscription with auto delivery.

when it come to electronics, there is more to know than just turning them on or off. This magazine is full of information that you are missing out. Good to know.
4.0 out of 5 stars Non Hacker Reader 30 May 2011
By Damon G. Labarbera - Published on Amazon.com

I am not a hacker, even remotely, but do enjoy this little magazine even though some, even though many, articles I don't fully understand, though bravely try to. The reason I buy it is, frankly, because it is so well written. The responses to the Letters to Editor are sometimes a scream--very funny while also, at the same time, being polite and informative. Also, there is a refreshing, First Amendment and civil libertarian ethos to the magazine, and the enjoyment of reading people writing enthusiastically about what they love to do. The magazine seems, to use a psychological phrase, genuine.
