At a book stand or magazine stand people will flip through the magazine to evaluate to buy or not to buy.
You cannot flip through an electronic magazine.
You have to buy without having a glimpse of the content.

The e-readers have been coming for sometime I mean I guess we couldn't always expect to hold a paper in our hand ;). At any rate it's pretty exciting who knows what else will be at our disposal in the coming years. Good article

Dear Mr. Gordon,

Great stuff!! Very thorough and insightful.

As the (very) old saying goes, "Litera Scripta Manet"-- The written word endures!

As a Sales Manager here in North Carolina, I want to share a great tool that I use constantly in the recognition category. This website (and others) are filled with so many great ideas and quotes, and I want to be able to share these with the employees at my company.

When it’s time to recognize someone for their performance, I take one of these quotes (I keep a long, ongoing list), and rather than giving them a standard old plaque (never again!), I put the quote on a DYI – Design Your Inspiration from Successories, since they are customizable AND personalizable. They are handsomely framed and the photo choices are great. It’s made employee recognition much more meaningful AND appreciated.The website is http://www.dyi.successories.com Thanks again. Anne

Great, if this is going to work, but obviously publishing companies will have to convince people to sign up for another service ! Not an easy feat if they're already tangled up with a Kindle or Apple. Especially if this new service will be just magazines, and not include newspapers.

There certainly is an exciting evolution in content delivery devices but unfortunately as these videos illustrate there is a misguided focus to see who can stick the magazine (ads and all) in an iPhone the best. Alternatively content producers might be better served exploring alternative revenue streams from putting their content in a form that readers can easily consume.


I think there's still something missing here:
