Is There a Future for Tablet-Only Periodicals?

The last few weeks have cast an ominous shadow over this niche industry following substantial staff cuts at News Corp.'s The Daily and a decision by the Huffington Post to give up on charging for its iPad magazine after just five issues. While some media observers are quick to write off the format, many in the industry see recent woes as part of the natural growing pains of an emerging market. A good part of the backlash stems from how inevitable tablet magazines seemed at their inception two years ago. With magazines and legacy print publications struggling, the iPad offered a flashy and interactive new way for publishers to bring new content to the tech-savvy masses without the burden of printing and distribution costs.

The reason for the differences is with the still image you only need to capture a brief second whereas with the video you are capturing a timeline. You may start wide and zoom in during this time or just stay still and let the action move through the frame. In the same amount of time given to a still shooter and a video shooter the still shooter will end up with more variety of shots. Second difference is that with video you are capturing sound as well as the visuals. Due to the necessity of good sound for video you will spend a lot of time being sure you have the right microphones and levels set so you are capturing the best quality sound.

How to Meet Cute Boys by Deanna Kizis, Grand Central Publishing

It's fiction-- don't worry. It looked cute, so I put it on my to-read list. A few weeks ago, while perusing the audiobooks at my library, I saw it in CD form. Deciding it would be as good a time as any to read it, I went to the desk to check it out. This book was perfect as an audiobook. I would recommend this book as an audiobook, or a vacation book.
