    Has anyone opted for the PDF version of Electronic Design and actually
    done a download? I'm curious what the file size was.

  2. The current Issue is 80MB, Jan 08 was 20MB.

    Too damn big! Seems like more ads too :-(

    20MB is high, but reasonable, 80MB is just insane. I just gave up on
    Embedded Systems Journal with their 100MB downloads. If Circuit Cellar
    can keep theirs to 15-20MB month after month I wonder why others
    can't. I'll stay with the dead tree version for now.

    It has been an advertising rag for over 4 decades. In retrospect you
    probably knew that but may not have brought it out to the verbal
    level. About 20 to 25 years ago the technical content quality dropped
    by an order of magnitude. I never went back.

    It's free, and I scan through it in just a few minutes, extract any
    pages I want and dump the rest ;-)

    Are you claiming that it has a worthwhile page or two per issue? I
    quit when it fell below 2 decent articles per year. Has it improved
    that much?
