Lots of Fun!9/5/2008
I downloaded the reader and also the magazines to my laptop. You don't have to load the magazines if you don't have the room. The reader will tell you which DVD to insert, depending on what you want to read about. If you ever wanted to read Rolling Stone Magazine, this is the way to do it. The Bondi reader works well, being very user friendly. I'm having such fun searching for and reading various articles. I like when things work as intended. I'm on Vista. No problem there. This is lots of fun!
The reader program that comes with Rolling Stone is very good. Content is easy to find. You can search using various criteria. Using the search mode you can compile a complete list of hundreds of articles. I started with my favorite ...Bob Dylan.... within moments I had hundreds of articles going back to the start of Rolling Stone. PLUS! You can save your searches. Get it!
