Although some items on the list are nice to remember. I don' t agree with your personal view. It almost seems disconnected with many things that go on nowadays.
For example, your personal idea of the gaming setup. In stead of bulky visible setups, a lot of gaming setups immerse you even deeper into the game than ever possible. (Think of those racing cars chairs that actually tilt backwards to simulate the acceleration feeling.)
Perhaps nice to look at a thread on neogaf forum called, " Show me your gaming setup" for ideas.
I do fully agree with your first point on the list but have to state that these magazines have been replaced by blogs. For example, apple apps programming by Ray Wenderlich is a really good example.
One thing I miss the most by far..... A physical reset button! Where did that thing go...
