Compute! had the exclamation mark for most of it's
life, until the company that produces Omni magazine
purchased it - then they dropped the !.  That
happened in the early 90's.  

I actually don't know if Compute is still being
published - it really stunk after Omni bought it,
but I thought the little Compute's Gazette insert
was pretty cool - it was still there in '93, I
believe.  C= magazines are still enjoyable 10 or
15 years after they are printed, PC magazines (if
they are enjoyable at all) are pretty much useless
after 6 months.  Just fluff and reviews and ads.
