The most influencial magazine in the 1980's about personal computing was without doubt BYTE magazine. I cannot remember ever reading any article about the BBC micro, BBC Basic, Econet, Archimedes, Risc OS or anything major about Acorn in BYTE. At best one may have had a footnote that Acorn or some British firm was doing xyz. I think this shows what sort of influence Acorn had.
