Magazine Publishers to Create ‘iTunes for Magazines’

By

Publishers like Time Inc. and Condé Nast are reportedly banding together to build an "online newsstand" for digital content, similar to iTunes, which sounds like a fine idea. We hope there's a Genius component that recommends stuff, like "If You Like Adam Gopnick You Might Also Want to Try Monocle, Adam Thirlwell's The Delighted States: A Book of Novels, Romances, & Their Unknown Translators, Containing Ten Languages, Set on Four Continents, & Accompanied by Maps, Portraits, Squiggles, Illustrations, and a Variety of Helpful Indexes and This Sterling Silver Marrow-Scooping Spoon."
