Nautilus CD

Nautilus CD (Metatec Corp., monthly), the first magazine created for CD-ROM, has been around for five years and it shows. There’s nothing slick or jazzy about Nautilus CD; it’s a straightforward, information-centered disc that looks and works like a magazine (more…)

Digital Culture Stream

Digital Culture Stream (Mixed Media Productions, quarterly) needs to pay more attention to production values if it is to have any chance in this market. The program is slow, soundtracks are infrequent, backgrounds are static, video clips are short, and there’s very little animation (more…)
