Luckily, some better-quality microfilm collections were acquired and donated to be digitized and preserved on film. The Internet Archive worked with open source communities and NextScan to improve the digitization by “adjusting for faded film, straightening the pages, performing optical character recognition” and more.
The collection includes 50 years of reporting from mainframes to iPhones to AI, via a publication that was the progenitor of future IDG properties like Macworld and PCWorld. The higher-quality issues are now available to all (with limited text search available for now), and can be read aloud for the print disabled.
