I think the latest demo of a future Time Magazine iPad Edition provides a very good view of what I hope we can achieve in the magazine publishing industry to bring interactive digital media to consumer and business audiences. The multimedia storytelling capabilities of this digital periodical allow us to achieve emedia vision first seen in the SI tablet demo.
Time already has a Free magazine issues newsstand library app (similar to the Zinio newsstand and magazine reader app) allowing iPad users to contain their issues in a single updating magazine app container.
“73,000 purchases of Wired iPad app in first nine days. Should beat newsstand sales of print mag (ave. mid 80s) this month.” – Chris Anderson
