$5.99 Exclusive Ebook Deal of the Day: Make Magazine
I’d buy these in an instant (and probably be willing to pay much more for them) if they were crisp/clear/digital files.. instead of obvious scans. Really wish MAKE had some kind of neato/slick iPad app. I’d pay for that too.
They are crisp clear digital files — not scanned, but make from InDesign. And the deal goes on all weekend, MelSkunk.
If it’s today only why are you posting it so late in the evening?
I’ve purchased the set and they are crystal clear!
Mad magazine readers will recall that the devices used in Spy vs. Spy often had surprising and unintended results. This book itself may be a clever counter-espionage device. Anything associated with Spy vs.Spy should be approached with the most cynical and paranoid mindset possible.
“You get free lifetime access”
How do they know when you die?
Actually, there is a standard deal of buy 1 eBook, get 1 free with code MBRBG that is a better deal (i.e. $4.99 per) if you buy an even number of eBooks, including Make PDFs. Just re-tested it, definitely works.
They do seem intriguing. But without a free copy/sample content, I can’t really get my head around if it’s something that’d be right for me (i.e. whether it’d be too clever for me).
