    Windows the Official Magazine - problem


    Hi, I just purchased "Windows the official magazine" from the windows store. The price was in US dollars but the magazine that downloaded was the UK edition. How do I get the North American one??? I'm in Canada, btw.

    I have given up on that publication.

    It used to be ok.

    It seems to have changed after the release of 8. It seems to have turned into little more than a catalog for win 8 machines,a propaganda mag.

    It describes itself like this:

    The Official Magazine is a showcase of the latest devices, apps and games which combine to make Windows 8 the best operating system for real life.
    Same publisher also does the iPad mag, I believe.
