By the way, what is DesignNew's policy regarding document storage with respect to copyright?  In a previous job, I created a digital libary for my group of PDF's of interesting articles and technologies.  For legal purposes, I emailed the editors at each magazine, which was sort of a pain.  Most didn't have problem, but one guy wanted me only to store the link. (He finally relented).  This libary was just a replacement for the manual one we had years ago, where you just tore the article out of the magazine and filed it without needing a law degree.

I still like my paper version as well.  Besides, it's better for your eyes not to stare at your computer all day.  It's also easier to read during the commercials if your watching TV.

The online e-zine and PDF versions look great. I agree with David that despite the utility and ease-of-use of online for searching and perusing content, it's nice to see the punch packed by a traditional magazine layout. Perfect mix!

Glad to hear it, David. As focused as we are on our digital/online audience, Design News is also still 110% committed to our highly-popular print edition.

I love the digital editions of Design News and the many others that I read. I know this will label me as a dinosaur, but they still don't have the charm of a old-fashioned paper magazine. Instant, yes. Easily updated, yes, The electronic forum is impossible to beat. Searchable, easy to clip and file for reference, and the inclusion of clickable links are all plusses. But, the relief of being able to walk away from the monitor and spend a quiet quarter-hour away from the desk and phone with a printed magazine is something that I really enjoy. It relieves stress, including eye-strain, and it's a great break.
