The actual magazine is fantastic; there is a wide range of content, and the articles are well written and interesting. Reading on the Kindle is a little clumsy and difficult, and sometimes the article headlines span two pages which is awkward. Overall for the price however the subscription is good value.

After 9 months I cancelled my Kindle subscription for Bloomberg Businessweek because although the writing quality is good, I always felt somewhat bereft because there were none of the images from the print edition. I'm not concerned by missing out on an extra photograph of a captain of industry, but it was galling that all the infographics were missing. Further, when I realised I could read all the articles including the pictures by reading Bloomberg Businessweek's website, I found there was very little value in having it on the Kindle.

On the positive side, the edition always arrived before a physical one would. When travelling and without reliable (cheap) internet access the magazine is good for keeping in touch, but since I'm not on the road that much currently, paying for the Kindle version doesn't supply much incremental value over the website.

3.0 out of 5 stars Convenient but disappointing 28 April 2012
I've given this three stars on the basis that it's a cheap price per month for a weekly magazine. Why not five stars? It definitely lacks something that the magazine has and often that actually includes the words. This week upon seeing the title of an article of interest, I navigated to it and read the first scintillating paragraph before realising the rest of the article was missing - this has been the case on an almost weekly basis for several stories. It's a shame because I love the kindle for its convenience but I'm getting tired of the disappointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars One more disappointed reader 30 Oct. 2009
By MAURICIO AGUIAR - Published on Amazon.com
I have just bought Kindle 2, international version, with the idea of getting books, magazines, and newspapers delivered to me in Rio/Brazil where I live. Kindle is great but... I was disappointed to learn that, outside of the US, Amazon delivers text-only versions of magazines and papers. This means I would have to read BW and other periodicals without any photos, tables, etc. I don't think I want to buy a subscription with that limitation. I'm adding this review to others like it in the hope that Amazon will hear the "voice of the customer" and do something about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Convenient 17 May 2009
By Jaewoo Kim - Published on Amazon.com
This is my 3rd magazine subscription for my Kindle 2.0 (other two are Fortune and Technology Review). The BW Kindle version has neither pictures nor advertisements. That makes reading BW on Kindle a MUCH faster, but not quite as satisfactory, reading experience.

The BW Kindle version is delivered wirelessly on every Friday, which is 3 days before its weekly Monday release. If you want to get your BW as early as possible, I don't think you can get BW faster than on Kindle.

As far as content, the BW magazine always had the latest business news and trends for the casual reader. It is meant for a light read that does not require a high level business knowledge. On the flip side, BW articles usually are lacking in technical depth and deep analysis. Its articles are rarely authoritative, but rather has a high quality newspaper(WSJ) type of journalism.

One thing BW does very well is forecasting the future trends. It is willing to take a swipe at the future trends (and sometimes be dead wrong) so its reader can understand the business problems, needs, and solutions of the foreseeable future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lazy and Poorly Thought Out 23 Oct. 2010
By Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Came upon a fascinating article about how much my identity would be worth online, only to find it consisted entirely of a graph not included in the Kindle version. Really guys? A whole week to prepare this magazine and you couldn't even so a "save as" to format an image into a Kindle friendly version? How does a goofball paper like The Onion include multiple pictures per article and we can't even get an important and informative graph in this?

They're charging regular price for minimal effort. Definitely not renewing my two-week trial.
