I'm thinking of switching over to digital copies over the next renewal sche dules. I've owned digital copies of magazines before and to be honest, unti l tablet computers came on the market, it just never seem easy to use them. With iPads and such, it's easy to bring them to the shop and be able to r eview a plan without having to print things out.
I'm curious what the members here think? In addition, I want to "rail a bit " against the rather exorbitant pricing some of the publishers have on the digital copies. I understand the wanting to maintain a profit margin for th e effort to produce, but I just don't see why a digital copy cost the same as a paper copy. I mean isn't there a price for paper, printer fees, storag e, etc?
The model that I like for any of this is Tauton's Fine Woodworking. For $14 .95 (I think) a year, you get access to their entire digital database of ma gazines, articles, blogs, etc. I've used this feature many times and it's j ust great. I just wish more magazines would follow.
Thoughts about this?
