IMHO I tend to find a lot of magazines are slightly biased towards promoting, giving good reviews etc... to their major advertisers (makes business sense, keep the paying advertiser happy, keep the money coming rolling in). Not just in the Computer world but in many other industries also.
I tend to rely more on web based publications, Register, OC3D etc..... tend to be a little less biased.
