Print Publishers Commit to Industry Standard Digital Platform

Five print publishing giants recently announced their intent to adapt to the quickly-changing world of media and technology. Major magazine publishers Hearst, Condé Nast, Time, and Meredith along with book and newspaper publisher The News Corporation have committed to working on a uniform digital way to present content.

No dates or time frame have been announced for the project, but its general manager says that as soon as a full color and interactive eReader for magazines and newspapers is announced, publishers want to be ready with a full, exciting, enjoyable experience for readers. Consumers will presumably be able to download magazine and newspaper issues from an online store similar to iTunes or Hulu for magazines. While I am partial to curling up with a magazine than an eReader, it's good to know that the publishers of my favorite titles are committed to working together on a digitized version of magazine content. It will be interesting to see how this new digital medium presents itself in the years to come.

Not surprised. Zinio.com is already offering mags and books online. Why not? Newspapers have moved to the web, now books and mags should too. While paper can erode overtime you can keep your files on a computer pretty much forever.

Oh good! I was hoping for digi magazines. I'm particularly interested in a clipping feature since I read a lot of cooking magazines. My current method to collect recipes involves cutting them out, arranging them, laminating the pages and putting them into a binder. Just a wee bit old school, yanno?

I'm with you. While I love the new, digital Lonny Magazine, somethings lacking when you're tried to the laptop to read it. A reader would be great!
