the economist. picking up an english version takes a bit of effort, so i read what really need online then occasionally buy a copy. theres still something about sitting back with it and several cups of coffee that a tablet doesnt have, but im not sure what.
Economist on iPad (includes audio so it can be read out to me while cooking) is great. Zinio mags are pretty good too.
However, there is something quite nice about magazines on the coffee table - show off value. My copy of Cross Country mag looks better in the flesh than on the iPad unfortunately, but nothing beats having all my books and magazines with me at all times.
Possibly relevant to virtual magazines is the version of tablet being used. I hated reading on my original iPad, with its low resolution screen. Now that they have gone hi-res, all is much better.
ive long enjoyed economist audio stuff and actually have a friend who does some. something about that oxford school of oriental studies accent. great stuff.
somewhat related; recently was reviewing a guy to work with, upon high recommendation of a friend. this guy had an extremely impressive resume, that amongst many things mentioned he read the economist as his chosen periodical.
perhaps the only magazine worth mentioning in a resume..?
I brought a few random ones for 99p, I am not convinced on their use.
I have a couple of paper plus electronic and to be honest tend to keep to the paper (aside from if sitting on train and bored).
Only one purely electronic is 2600 as a Kindle magazine (on kindle and on laptop app) and thats because the paper version is a pain to get hold off in the UK.
