It’s the end of an era. The August 2013 issue marks the final U.S. print version of the venerable PCWorld magazine, founded in 1983. However, PCWorld will still publish on the Web, and the print magazine will continue in some other countries. PCWorld’s sister publication, Macworld, will continue to arrive on newsstands each month for the foreseeable future. follow link

PCWorld Magazine Drops Print for the Web
So I wanted a refund, after recently resubscribing. The refund button didn't work on their webpage and an 800 number I was directed to didn't have a menu choice for refunds. There was no customer service representative option.
PCWorld is making it difficult to refund my money even though the presses have stopped.
I'm sorry that the printed PCWorld is history. I always learned something reading it on my commute.
