The scuttlebutt is that the Conde Nast, Apple, Bonnier, HP and others are working on a new standard for the display and delivery of interactive magazines. Immersive and animated, these new publications could spell relief for the industry. My money is on Apple to extend iTunes LP/Extras (the tools/environment for album liner notes and dvd-esque menus for videos) to the magazines. Then sell the magazines in iTunes to be viewed on Computers, iPhones and upcoming table (iSlate?). I think all of this runs on Webkit (the rendering engine in Safari, Chrome and other browsers).
Sounds good to me.
Another iTunes observation: the other night I used iTunes to chip in $25 bucks to the American Red Cross’s Haiti efforts. It was the easiest donation, in terms of logistics, I’ve ever made. Frictionless charity.
