E-readers 'a threat to impressive-looking bookshelves' - The Daily Mash

E-readers 'a threat to impressive-looking bookshelves' - The Daily Mash | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
E-readers like Kindle are rapidly replacing traditional books, but unlike a shelf full of intimidating hardbacks about poetry, string theory and Russian actors who committed suicide, they can never make you look more intelligent than you really are.

A Sneak Peek at Version 2.0 of Sports Illustrated's iPad App [PICS]

A Sneak Peek at Version 2.0 of Sports Illustrated's iPad App [PICS] | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Chris Hercik, creative director of the Sports Illustrated Group, unveiled at Mashable Connect a prototype of the next version of Sports Illustrated‘s app for the iPad, elements of which will be carried over to the publication’s print and Android versions.

The redesign, which should appear in print and on tablets by July, exemplifies an ongoing move to integrate all Sports Illustrated content across platforms and devices, a rare move for a magazine. It also marks a shift, in some respects, away from Sports Illustrated‘s weekly distribution model with content — namely tweets and blog posts — that refreshes every 15 to 30 seconds.

The Daily: It's a Second-Rate iPad Magazine, Not a Newspaper [OP-ED]

The Daily: It's a Second-Rate iPad Magazine, Not a Newspaper [OP-ED] | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
News Corp Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch took the stage at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City Wednesday morning to unveil The Daily, a newspaper designed specifically for the iPad.

Murdoch has sunk $30 million into the project thus far, and says it will cost less than half a million dollars to produce each week — meaning that The Daily will cost approximately $53 million to produce in its first year. Subscriptions, priced at $0.99 per week or $39.99 per year, are expected to generate the majority of revenue; Murdoch hopes that, in time, advertising will come to make up half of that figure.

Wired Magazine Arrives on the iPad

Wired Magazine Arrives on the iPad | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
The Wired Magazine iPad application was announced and demoed back in March, and now it’s finally here.

When the iPad was first announced, many thought that Wired Magazine’s edition for the device would be the one to redefine the way we look at magazines. From the looks of it, it doesn’t disappoint; there’s a lot of interactive content (June’s issue features an interactive map of Mars), as well as slide shows, video and music.

The new world of apps and HTML5 - Editors Weblog

Many believe that apps are the future for news distribution and that the iPhone (and smartphones in general) and the iPad (as well as other tablets) have started a revolution. The launch of the long-awaited The Daily, the iPad-only Rupert Murdoch's newspaper, is another step in this progression.

"Apps are all the rage, with The Daily's taking center-stage this week. With tabletmania sweeping the country, you can almost hear the howls of publishers across the country, as they implore their IT chiefs: "Get me an app, pronto!"" wrote Ken Doctor, on Nieman Lab, in an article that analysed the "Newseconomics" of these technological changes.

Playboy Bypasses the App Store: A Model for Other Digital Magazines?

Playboy Bypasses the App Store: A Model for Other Digital Magazines? | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Playboy finally arrived fully uncensored on the iPad Thursday, but it couldn’t go through the prudish App Store to get there. Instead, it arrives as an iPad-optimized web app, which means it doesn’t have to abide by the App Store’s rules, or share subscription revenue with Apple. Sounds like a sweet deal, but is it a model that will be attractive to other magazines?
