A Note from the Editor...
Welcome to Plus, the new magazine-style supplement
distributed through your campus newspaper. You'll be seeing us
throughout the school year as we bring you special one-theme
issues. And we think you'll like what you see-topics of interest,
lively articles, and eye-catching artwork.
This first issue of Plus is "The College Guide to Consumer
Electronics." In it, we feature the world of electronics from the
consumer's point of view: what you need to know about buying
and using today's high-tech equipment.
Are you in the market for a computer, electronic typewriter,
or advanced hand-held calculator to assist you in your studies?
Maybe you've been thinking about enhancing your living
space with a compact disc player, telephone answering machine,
or other creature comforts. Regardless of what products you're
after, you want those that meet your needs. In school or out,
at work or play, you're living in an
electronic world... and college is
just the beginning. That's where
Plus can help.
With so many choices available,
how do you decide what's right for
you? Should you buy for the short
term or the long haul? How do you
pick equipment that can "advance"
- with you? Plus asks the questions
and supplies the answers.
Look for future issues of Plus
along with your campus newspaper. The feature topics will
change, but our goal remains the same: to help you make smart
