Do you prefer magazines in print or online?

TECHCRUNCH.COM reports:
Well, The Daily failed. It wasn’t all that fun while it lasted. And it didn’t last all that long. If everyone had known that it was going to cost $25 million a year to run, it probably would have been easy to predict its eventual failure.

    Here is an idea for magazines on tablets and smart phones: Go fully interactive. A magazine is a magazine, but if you have a tablet, you want to interact with the pages on the mag. Even the advertisements can be interactive.

    I tried reading Entertainment Weekly on my tablet but it just wasn't as enjoyable for some reason. I'll just stick with the print.

    I've tried reading them online. I love being able to flip back and forth and not have to zoom in and out.

    Flipping thru the IPAD on the throne just isn't the same.

    And what do you do when you run out of TP? IPAD will leave a mark!

    Books are also better than with Kindles, etc. Nothing like a comfy chair, a good book and a rainy day.

    Print magazines are a waste and weigh more than an e-reader.

    Magazines are the best advertisers for products. Magazines make one want to go out and buy products, especially cosmetics, which print makes eye catching. TV commercials only flash at you, get annoying, while pictures tell a thousand words. There is a special feeling holding a paper magazine in your hands, letting your eyes and senses take over.

    Reading in print (provided you have enough light) is better for your eyes than reading on the screen.

    For me print is much better. I feel the same about newspapers. I do read digital books for the convenience but I would feel cheated without my cup of coffee and the thick Sunday paper.

    Print by far. But that said I don't buy them often anymore, and am curious how many other 'Print' voters buy print magazines.

    I like to adjust the font size, that is also why I prefer newspapers in digital form. No trash to dump either.
