Resurrecting Publications

As I was flipping through the past week of tech news in Google Reader, I stumbled upon a Time Inc. Magazine Tablet demo and my jaw dropped. Although I wouldn't necessarily pick up a Sports Illustrated, even in digital form, the live cover page, photo flipping, ease and speed of navigation, and multimedia throughout the magazine makes it a very compelling device. Just the way that the engineers implemented the ability to rearrange pages based on reading preference is just brilliant. Maybe my three years of mostly unopened Wired issues will finally become a thing of the past. In fact, I am tempted to hold off on renewing my subscription until the digital tablet edition arrives.

Now if only they will allow me to flip through my Google Reader quickly, I'll be set. Anyhow, check out the video below.
