Could this be the new new thing?

Perhaps — once they improve the quality of print on computer screens.

Computer Graphics World recently moved to the Zinio format, which is why I immediately had my subscription changed back to the paper version. You see they used to provide the magazine in PDF format. A nice fairly open standard that required no additional software on my computer. (Macintoshes ship with a PDF viewer already built in) Unfortunately, once CGW switched to this all new format (which doesn't appear to offer anything over the existing PDF format) I could no longer freely read their magazine on my work machine. We're not allowed to install third party software.

A real shame. I used to like having my entire library available and searchable whenever I wanted. Ah well, at least the paper versions can be read anywhere with or without power. I suppose I was spending to much time in front of the computer anyway. Hrmmm... does that make me a luddite?
