Subcompact Publishing | Tablet publishing | Scoop.it
Defining simple tools and systems for digital publishing.
Miguel Cornejo Castro's insight:

This (Nov'012) "manifesto" about sums up the reaction against plain transcription of current magazines to tablet... and bloated "flash-site" multimedia tablet mags. Magazines are about communication. Not about being flashier than thou. Even if Adobe and co. want to push the idea of "what the tablet can do", gratuitous effects and weight don't add up to better reading. Rethinking mags is just starting... and while I don't quite buy the subcompact :-), it's a refreshing perspective.

Black Friday breaks online sales records with Apple kit leading the charge
Miguel Cornejo Castro's insight:

Again, proof positive that iPad's the tool of choice for actually doing something with a tablet.

 

Not that it's likely to predominate for ever, but the smartphone-sales-driven Android supremacists need a bit of straightening. A cheap smartphone is one thing, a device you actually use (not to mention a working tablet) is another. And facts are stubborn (about that, and about Kindle and Nook, too).

Daring Fireball: Why 'The Daily' Failed

Miguel Cornejo Castro's insight:

"In fact, I’d go so far as to say The Daily’s success proves the opposite of Salmon’s conclusion: that an iPad-only daily news app could be a success.

Their success was that they got over 100,000 readers to pay at least $40 per year for a subscription. How many digital publications can say that? Not many. And the iPad — with Apple’s simple, trusted, familiar payment mechanism — made that possible."

 

Beautifully put.

 

The Daily failed despite platform choice. And it showed the possibilities of that platform (provided you add either quality or a megalaunch).
