They actually cover FIRST in the magazine.

Thanks Ed, but I was looking for something more broad. Less specific to FIRST, but more about technology and science.

Popular Science and Popular Mechanics are always fun, so is Scientific American. I've almost got more subscriptions than time to read them.

Nuts & Volts magazine is great for electronics hobbyists.
Servo is by the same folks, but more focused on robotics.
CQ Amateur Radio is an excellent ham radio magazine - but I may be biased...
Home Shop Machinist is devoted to metalworking hobbyists.
Analog is a great science fiction magazine.

N&V and Servo have the habit of publishing multi-part project articles that span issues. That means a subscription is nearly mandatory unless you have a super-sized bookstore in your area. These magazines don't appear on smaller racks. I'm not even sure there are many libraries with subscriptions, in case your first issue arrives with part 3 of a super-intriguing project in progress.
