The interest in iPad publishing over the past year has revolved around Apple taking a 30% commission and imposing the iTunes Store model onto publishers. European publishing houses held off iPad publishing until Apple subsided, and as a result now allows publishers to use their own site for selling Apps and subscriptions. There’s irony in that, but more importantly, it painfully exposes how risky and expensive iPad publishing really is. The irony lies in the fact that web driven publishers don’t know how to sell their content but expect they’ll be capable of selling iPad Apps.

Body Because I recently left a job at one of the most prominent publications in the world, people often ask me about my opinions on the cavalcade of publications rushing to the iPad — those apps designed and developed by newspapers and magazines principally to deliver their print content — and the chances I see for their success. So here it is. To start, I think it’s too early to say anything definitive about whether these apps will become lasting delivery mechanisms for print content and brands.
Body I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to my post from yesterday, “ My iPad Magazine Stand ,” in which I laid out my thoughts on why most of the current crop of iPad magazine apps have dim prospects for long-term success. The thoughtful comments left here on the blog as well as the steady stream of RT’ing on Twitter have been terrific.
By: Hillel Fuld This Flipboard thing is a true phenomenon. If you have an iPad or are interested in the wild success of this new computing platform, you have most likely heard of Flipboard. Flipboard is the first “social magazine” as it is being called. It is a free app that enables users to access their various social streams and RSS feeds in an interface more magazine-like than most magazines. Flipboard became the first of a lot of different categories when it comes to iPad apps.
