and have a fun time together.

Michael’s latest “Linefeed Reading List” video is up, covering a few releases from October. Magazines included are: Fire & Knives, Stranded, Gasbook Pop, Paris Vogue, Another Man, Circus, Block, and It’s Nice That.
This is something I posted over at SNOW Magazine a couple of weeks back, and forgot to mention here, even though I think it’s important to note in the context of all the digital publishing talk I cover here. It’s a new piece of software called ComiPo, a “manga sequencer,” and the idea is that [...]
The November 2010 issue of Wired is out on iPad, and once you get past the giant breasts on the cover, the first think you notice — or that you may not have noticed unless you accessed the app — is that new issues are now just added in-app, and you can set notifications to [...]
A funny thing about my love this year for New York Magazine. I’ve seen some terrific covers thanks to blogs like NAS CAPAS and Fuck Yeah, Magazines, I’ve read some great profiles that were hosted on its website (which I then read through Instapaper), and I’ve even seen the occasional interior spread. One thing I [...]
I may have had some complaints about the new NYT app for iPad, but one thing I do love is the new photo section, which apes the video section of the previous app. It’s similar to what you get on the excellent Guardian Eyewitness app, but here you get a ton of new great photos [...]
The sort of big news today in the digital publishing world — although not entirely surprising — is that Wired creative director Scott Dadich has left the magazine to focus entirely on his other gig, that of leading parent company Condé Nast’s digital publishing development. But the most interesting thing to come out of the [...]
Wired isn’t the only magazine that needs to be more careful about text that refers to images in a dual mode reading environment. I rather like Entertainment Weekly‘s The Must List app for iPad, and check out their 10 picks every week — I like how you can watch trailers and sample tracks from within [...]
At least according to a survey done by Condé Nast on what the preferred reading position is on iPad. From Folio (via Magtastic Blogsplosion): Condé Nast also noted that users preferred to read the magazines in portrait mode, but to watch video in landscape. Not that this is particularly surprising — when interacting with a [...]
The following video shows off a proof of concept for an upcoming web-based digital hip-hop magazine formatted for iPad called Hoodgrown Digital — notice anything familiar? It’s rather shocking how clearly they have ripped off Flipboard for the main interface, right down to the exact placement of selections. Even worse, this is being sold as [...]
Just want to take a moment to say how much I need to thank everyone for the avalanche of feedback, emails, tweets, retweets, and blog mentions that I’ve received since I started doing more magazine/digital coverage here, in just the short few weeks I’ve been doing it. It’s funny that I removed all comments on [...]
