Is this the future of magazines?

Thanks to Daniel Pink for the heads-up on Apple Insider’s demo of the soon-to-be-launched digital edition Sports Illustrated.   Time Inc, the largest magazine publisher in the US,  has been plagued by declining subscription  revenue and layoffs according to Tech.Blorge, so it’s taking a new tact with its magazine content by testing this tablet-friendly version of Sports Illustrated.

Apparently Wired and others are also working on their own digital editions.

I know for sure that the boys at school will LOVE this!
