   10. Can I save the article that I want into my computer?

However, there are some publications that will be up after 6.00am or 9.00am (i.e. Utusan and Kosmo) due to the arrangement between us and the publishers or the nature of the publication (i.e. afternoon paper like Malay Mail).
  14. I zoomed in to read the publication in HomeMagazine, and everything looked blur and I couldn’t read anything. I could only read the main headlines but the text was unreadable. Why?
With a slower Internet connection, it will take sometime for the image to become clear as the image detail is being retrieved from the server. HomeMagazine is a content based website, so it requires more speed and is best viewed with a stable broadband connection such as Unifi. A page download indicator bar is at the top center of the HomeMagazine page. You should be able to tell that the page is still downloading when you see the progress of the bar. This bar will disappear once the image finishes downloading. Sometimes network congestion, especially during peak hours can lead to this problem even though your speed is higher than 35Mbps. Therefore, please try the free publication before you subscribe.
   15. What to do when the page shows “User already log in” when you try to log in?
The error means somebody else has logged in into your account or you did not properly logout from the account. Always ensure that you logged out properly before you close the browser. If you accidentally close the browser without properly logging out, please wait until your account is unlocked (maximum waiting time is 1 hour).
  16. After renewing my subscription, the end date was not updated on HomeMagazine. Why?
