  • Kevin: Delia Cabe has a good overview of magazine apps on the iPad. She's not impressed by Time or Newsweek. Her verdict on Time? "The preview consists of postage-size photos with short article titles. Nothing interests me enough to drop five bucks. Never mind. K Thx Bye."
    From the reviews and also the apps that I've played with, they still seem a rather unintelligent, poorly thought out mix of multimedia and flat print – I say flat because many apps actually break the benefits of digital by merely having text as images. No links. No search. No thanks. I'll stick to Safari on websites. I like my digital truly digital.
