Internet killed the magazine star
Subject: General Tech | February 5, 2007 - 12:25 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
E-books are having a hard time catching on. Many dedicated readers miss the visceral experience of holding a book, and the ease of use. You can't really take your monitor to the beach or into the bath, and PDAs don't let you see a full page at one time.
Magazines, on the other hand are disappearing quickly, as the web quickly trumped them as a way of getting target information quickly. Take a look at [H]ard|OCPs article examining that change.
"There was once a heyday in which print magazines flew off the shelves when a new piece of hardware was released. These days,
readers flock to their favorite website, and instead gauging public interest in terms of the number of issues sold, we measure
it in page views."
