Yay!
This should be cool!

I was going to post this in the interesting websites section of BTS but it will get more traffic here - mods you are free yadda yadda...


Gadget nerds: Prepare to lose the rest of your day to awesomeness. PopSci, the web-wing of Popular Science magazine, has scanned its entire 137-year archive and put it online for you to read, absolutely free. The archive, made available in partnership with Google Books, even has the original period advertisements. Read More www.wired.com...

search the popsci.com archives


edit: - search on your birth month! - I just done mine and having a good look at the issue - strangly you can't go straight to the issue, but you can find an article dated in that month and then browse the rest of the issue at will...

It's a deal between Google books and Pop Science - I really don't know much about the way Google books operate actually... I'm guessing no but I may be wrong - A big part of the google way of operating is the advertising, loathe it or love it that's how they keep things free to the end user (you!) - me personally I don't really mind - it's a 2 way street, they get data from me, ad revenue from advertisers and I get free content - fairly sweet deal really.

Thanks for this link.

Ranks as one of the better sites on the internet IMO!


My ex threw away almost an entire decade (the 80's) worth of PS, PM, and lots of Heavy Metal magazines and boxes and boxes of comic books from the 70's.


She said a grown man shouldn't keep all this stuff. On E-bay, a lot of the stuff I had are worth a lot of $$$$$$$'s today.

I'm still mad at her for throwing MY STUFF away!
