cpu-mag-jan-2011What’s the rush? It is January already for Computer Power User magazine. Here is a fine new release of January 2011 issue, available as a free download here in pdf format (84 MB). 

Some interesting topics inside with my little editing: 

• What Motivates Consumers to Engage With Companies Online? — number one reason is discounts and giveaways (77%)
