Newsweek to Eventually Cease Print Edition

July 25, 2012


Newsweek will eventually be online-only.

Have you ever read an iPad edition of a magazine? I really like it. My three favorites are Fortune, Sports Illustrated, and Southern Living (yes, I read Southern Living).

I would look for more magazines to go this route in the future. The world is changing.

  1. Sometimes paper is good. What do we do when we are on a plane and all electronic devices must be turned off? What happens when electricity is out and we lose WiFi for days? What happens when the electronic device just doesn’t work?

  2. I like paper mags because I don’t have to worry about throwing them in a bag and it getting damaged, getting them dirty, etc.. I live alone, and keep a nice supply in my oval office.

    The funny thing about Newsweek is I have been thinking about cancelling it for a while now, due to it’s liberal bias. Only reason I haven’t is I get it for free. LOL

    I prefer Bloomberg Business Week, but come to think of it, I have not gotten many of those recently. Wonder if that disappeared also.

  3. I read Money and This Old House on our iPad and love it. It’s very handy when traveling to not have more to pack.

    Sports Ill. is read by all on the ‘pad, except mom skips it…just don’t care/I have enough to do/read!

  4. Smart Money is stopping publication in September. They are going to replace it with Barrons until your subscription runs out. I guess I will have to start trying out the ipad versions.

    Of course you read Southern Living, it a requirement!

    The best thing about e-Magazines is not having to store them on the shelf and not having to recycle them.

    mercyn, when all the power goes out, you unplug, go outside and enjoy it! You’ll be able to see the faintest of stars and the milky way. If there’s snow, play in it. Summer, well – try to stay cool. 😀

    clocks, I do not read Newsweek, did not know it had a liberal bias, I’ll have to read a few issues at the lib to see if I get the same impression.

  7. What will the dentists offices have in their waiting rooms if Newsweek goes away? That is the only place I see it anymore. Sorta like CNN – if it weren’t for airports no one would watch at all.
