For those just entering the market, there is significant cost of new production, up to $100,000 per issue. For those already there, content now needs to be duplicated away from Flash and Silverlight.

If sales don’t exceed expectations, the advertising dollars will disappear and publishers will be worse off than they already are.

You’re a writer. As long as you’re not with Fox News, it’s OK to care what publishing channel you write for, a little bit – enough, but not too much.

For everything else, there’s agents.

All three formats have advantages and disadvantages. Everyone won’t want app versions of magazines. Everyone doesn’t have to for that format to be a success.

Functionally, the iPad is a netbook, albeit one with a touchscreen. There’s nothing new here. I’m not excited in any way about a closed system with no new capabilities, and I’m surprised you are. This is not the future of reading. http://wp.me/pJhAL-2U.
