The Future of Magazines?

Hot on the heels of Zinio, which offers free browsing for iphone users (so go check out an iphone user agent plug-in for Firefox), news of Coverleaf, a similar digital newstand. Reserving judgement on whether these ideas are more useful than, say, a magazine website. Partly because I’m uncertain about the need to replicate the look and feel of printed pages in the digital realm – after all e-books are much easier to read when the text can be re-flowed to suit your reading device. But there’s no denying the visceral appeal of a beautifully designed magazine page. Maybe one day we’ll have the screens to do them justice 🙂
