WIRED -- One of the best evolutions in magazine publishing is inside the covers of Wired magazine. That evolution would be the demise of hype and the rise of acerbic writing.

Wired writers² simply tell you the story without the geek hype. Granted, some of the fetish objects¹ would only surface in a geek house. That's just fine for me and millions of other Wired readers who cannot get enough of smart technology.
