Macworld Removes Sign-Ins

Macworld Removes Sign-Ins -- In a welcome move, Macworld magazine has eliminated the sign-in and authentication requirements for many areas of its much-promoted Web site (including current and back issues of Macworld magazine), although authentication is still required for message boards and vendor-based areas. Macworld claims it needs to grab some demographic information to keep advertisers happy and revenue flowing, but it's interesting to note that MacUser has never required authentication on its Web site, which has been around a lot longer.
