Behold! The era of the digital magazine

We love print. There is something about that high resolution type, that gloss laminated cover that makes it so hard to beat. But this is 2010, Jupiter is about to collapse into a star, we should be moving on from ink on wood pulp by now!

The web was a false start for magazine publishers, though reproduction and distribution costs become almost meaningless something was lost, that something was good design.

The iPad is here to save the publishing industry, or so the story goes. If the brand new Mag+ version of Popular Science magazine is any indicator, not only will it save the industry but it might just propel it into an entirely new orbit. Be sure to snag yourself a copy of the future, this is it folks!

Thanks to Matt from All About iPhone for the heads up.
