The State of Magazines on the iPad: a Giant Mess
About a year ago, I decided, perhaps like many others, to go all digital with my magazine subscriptions. All the paper magazines my wife and I subscribed to were cluttering up the house and becoming a pain to dispose of in plastic trash bags. It was a grand experiment, and eco-friendly, to convert almost all to the iPad.
The experiment has not worked out as well as I'd hoped. The biggest problem for me has been the immediacy of the reading experience. It became painfully obvious last night when I was downloading the June issue of Scientific American.
