I wrote to Analog a week or more ago. My letter pretty much echoed your sentiments, including suggesting electronic subscriptions direct from them and a desire to have DRM-free ebooks. In any case, I have yet to receive an answer.
I am particularly annoyed because I cannot find where I can actually buy Analog (and Asimov's) in the UK for my Kobo.
It is sad that after almost 40 years of reading Analog, I may have to stop because I cannot actually get a copy of the magazine.
