The iPad. I still can’t say that name out loud without a slight chuckle. However, the more we wait for the iPad’s release the more we imagine how it would be to actually use one (and if Rogers/Telus/Bell will offer a 6GB data plan). Damn you Apple, for making us wait. Anyways, we know the iPad is going to be great for internet, email, music, books, and photos to start–but what about digital magazines?
Interview Magazine Celebrates 40 Years with an iPad Magazine Demo
Interview magazine (started by Andy Warhol) is celebrating its 40th anniversary Tuesday night in New York, and in celebrating its past will take a look into the future by unveiling its capabilities on the Apple iPad. The magazine announced it will be introducing several issues on the iPad. Take a look at the video and you’ll be thoroughly impressed. Multitouch on the iPad makes all of this possible.
From the Huffington Post:
“When Andy Warhol founded Interview four decades ago, he did so with an ethos that
embraced the new,” the magazine said in an announcement. “As with his art, Warhol re-wrote the rulebook with Interview, creating an innovative, intelligent, sophisticated, cutting-edge magazine that was culturally impactful, pushed the boundaries of the medium, and reinvented what a magazine could be. So it’s entirely fitting that Interview is once again at the forefront of reinventing the magazine experience for Apple’s iPad, combining the benefits of the digital age with the familiar advantages of Guttenberg’s printing press to deliver a groundbreaking, knock-out reader experience. One could call Interview magazine on the iPad ‘an affordable Warhol screenprint.’”
Interview will introduce its 40th anniversary issue, featuring Kristen Stewart on the cover, as well as its December/January 2010 (Penelope Cruz), February 2010 (Jay-Z) and March 2010 (fashion) issues, all “reconfigured, redesigned, and re-imagined for Apple’s iPad.”
