My iPad Magazine Stand by Khoi Vinh

“iPad app version of The New Yorker as a content experience, was an impediment to my normal content consumption habits. I couldn’t email, blog, tweet or quote from the app, to say nothing of linking away to other sources — for magazine apps like these, the world outside is just a rumor to be denied.”


“My understanding is that a lot of these apps are being actively encouraged and even partially funded by the folks at Adobe.. In my personal opinion, Adobe is doing a tremendous disservice to the publishing industry by encouraging these ineptly literal translations of print publications into iPad apps.”


“They must translate their print editions into a utilitarian complement to their users’ content consumption habits.”


“And it’s a no-brainer to me that content consumption is going to be intimately if not inextricably linked with your social graph.”
