Magazines begin to show up on the iPad

Maybe you’ve already seen this, but it was new to me today. The reviewer takes a look at how Time (likely the issue featuring Daryl Peveto’s Tea Party coverage), GQ, and Popular Science, are using the iPad to showcase their content. Looks beautiful to my eyes, but I can only imagine that creating both pretty horizontal and vertical versions of content will increase design time and money. Even in the poorly shot video above, though, the photos look beautiful. Will it save the world? Journalism? Photography? The jury is still out. Photoshelter has corralled a few opinions about what the device means for photography, the New York Times has a wide-ranging set of opinion pieces, and there are many other reviews available.

    This might not “save” things but I can’t see it hurting .. and it is pretty darn cool. Can’t wait to see more and to see in person

    […] Asim Rafiqui has a nice perspective on the hubbub surrounding the media’s adoption of the iPad platform. […]
