Wired to Publish on the iPad

I’m ready to take a year’s worth of Wired mags with me weighing in at 1.5 lbs! Magazines just can’t be done in black and white eInk. While I truly enjoy getting my monthly copy of Wired in print now, being able to zoom in on text or tap to see more info is very exciting news.

Wired Magazine Editor-in-Chief Chris Anderson announced at TED (the Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference on Friday that the publication would be releasing its content for the iPad by summer.

“I’m from the media world,” Anderson told the audience “and as you may have heard, we have lots of questions about our future. The good news is I think we found part of the answer…. We think this is a game changer.”

The device allows for integrated media so readers can read a product review and touch a photo to jump into a video of the product. Advertisements can also be interactive. Clark touched a Camaro ad to flip the car around 360 degrees.

I wonder if Zinio will step up with a iPad specific (better than current) reader app.
