Previously quarterly editions cost £2.54 now all of a sudden this summers edition has had it's price hiked up to £3.94 thats a price rise of well over 50%!! Also I am confused that the subscription rate (monthly) is only 99p this means that prior to this edition people who bought the quarterly edition outright actually made a saving over the subscription rate (i.e. 3 months = a Quarter so 3 x 99p = £2.97 and £2.97 - £2.54 = a saving of 43p). Now if you buy the quarterly edition outright you will be paying approx £1 more than the subscription rate would have cost over those 3 months.
This is inconsistent and confusing and I think subscribers\purchasers should be told in clear terms why this change has suddenly appeared and if this will affect future subscription rates or not. As for the content I have no quibbles - this level of informative material is hard to find in the run of the mill computer magazines.
