I really like the idea of a magazine that compiles the existing guru's on productivity rather than yet another blog, if it works out, this could be the one stop place to go. A few small things that I did notice while going through the PDF: It's a lot of the same. A downside to a magazine vs. a blog is that it has the readers expect more than just a compilation of (rather nicely) formated blog posts. Maybe try adding product reviews, etc. This is the first edition so there isn't much yet, but a Q&A is always good, maybe reward the best Q with a free something.. etc Again, I really did enjoy the read, just trying to pitch in :)

Thanks Rian for your comment. As you've written, it's the first issue and we'll be carefully collecting feedback from readers and make sure we make the second one even better. Keep the comments coming! :-)

Hi Just saw this on Lifehacker and downloaded my first issue. One thing that would make me MUCH more likely to get future issues if I could have them downloaded automatically. Podcast downloaders like Itunes can automatically download pdfs. For example Podcast User Magazine ( http://www.podcastusermagazine.com/oldsite.html ) had a feed ( http://feeds.feedburner.com/podcastusermag ) that you could put into Itunes and any time a new pdf was posted my Itunes would collect it when it was downloading my fav podcasts. I think all you'd have to do is change your feed to show the full feed rather than a summary and then have a direct link to the pdf in a post. I could then put your feed into Itunes and then when it detects a pdf it would suck it down.

Congratulations on the new magazine. Great cross-section of ideas, and something that has dropped onto my desktop at the right time.
