Electronic Gaming Monthly to Offer iPadStyle Mags Over Facebook

No Comments on Electronic Gaming Monthly to Offer iPadStyle Mags Over Facebook

first_imgBuilding a “Facebook Newsstand”Using Screenpaper technology, publishers will be able to display their digital edition on Facebook. “The newsstand is comprised of a reader that lets you see the magazine on Facebook or pull it out of Facebook environment, as well as access and purchase other magazines,” says Harris. Individual publishers can decide their own issue price for the newsstand. Print editions of EGM will feature codes that allow readers access to premium digital content that people reading free version can’t get. While Harris won’t reveal specifics, he said publishers using Screenpaper technology will face upfront set-up charges, rather than a revenue share. Meanwhile, wedding brand TheKnot.com has also launched a proprietary iPad application that it developed in-house. The Knot app includes a wedding community where brides can read articles and chat with other brides; a digital scrapbook that lets brides clip more than 700 articles, pages and images within a page and have it organized by category; share and send capabilities with e-mail Twitter and Facebook as well as more than 20 videos including step-by-step guides. A video demo of The Knot app is available here. In January 2009, Ziff Davis Media shuttered Electronic Gaming Monthly. Later that year EGM founder Steve Harris purchased the assets back and by the first half of 2010, the magazine returned to print and the newsstand. Like many magazines, the next step for EGM is to master the iPad but the magazine says it’s going a step further by introducing a digital magazine solution providing “iPad-style magazines accessible and viewable on Facebook” (a sample of EGM’s digital version can be found here). In a tweet announcing the new service, Harris wrote, “It’s something that we’ll be making available to all publishers very soon. It seamlessly integrates a commerce front-end with viewing and sharing within the Facebook community.” The effort started specifically for EGM but grew into the launch of a new company called Screenpaper Media that leverages Adobe’s AIR as well as the “one-stop shop” that other vendors tout. “We built our own solution that lets us embed video and audio and do things advertisers would want and we started to realize we were creating something other publishers would find of interest,” says Harris. “We wanted to make sure the platform we created isn’t something that required a separate back-end for a Web site or a separate back end for Facebook or the iPad. We wanted to create something that with same source files-not just PDFs or jpgs or whatever page is that you’re trying to repurpose-enables you to graft on top of that video and audio and lets you output to all those sources-browser, Facebook, Android, iPad-with a single button push.” last_img read more

Groups Pose Alternative Missions for DavisMonthan AFB to Address A10 Retirement

No Comments on Groups Pose Alternative Missions for DavisMonthan AFB to Address A10 Retirement

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR While the A-10 jet appears to have dodged retirement once again, the Air Force’s plan to retire the fleet of ground-attack jets in favor of other aircraft that can fulfill its close air support mission and save $4 billion likely isn’t going away.The looming retirement of the A-10 poses an uncomfortable question for Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson as the aircraft represents the installation’s primary flying mission and the Air Force is looking to shed excess capacity. In the first of a multi-part series, the Arizona Daily Star considers five future missions for the installation suggested by the various entities advocating for the installation, including the DM50, the Southern Arizona Defense Alliance, Pima County and the city of Tucson:use Davis-Monthan for close air support training, perhaps with F-16s;transform it into a center for combat search-and-rescue training;move more drone operations there;create a central operations base under the 12th Air Force, which already has its headquarters at Davis-Monthan; andmake the base home to a future close air support plane or light-attack plane.The alternatives, with the exception of drone operations, would match up closely with existing missions at Davis-Monthan, but all have drawbacks, according to the story. And one suggestion, turning the installation into a central operations base for the 12th Air Force-Air Forces Southern, has been criticized by some of the Davis-Monthan support groups because it ignores the assets the base offers for a flying mission.Clearly the stakes are high as the installation generates an estimated $1 billion annually for the southeastern Arizona economy.“Any type of reduction in military spending or a decrease in the assets at D-M is going to have a significant impact on our local economy,” said David Godlewksi, chairman of the Southern Arizona Defense Alliance and president of the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association. “D-M is a cornerstone of our economy.”Here is a link to the other stories in the Daily Star’s series about Davis-Monthan.last_img read more

This is one of the best deals we’ve seen on the 10-inch model, though keep in mind it might be bigger than you’d want if counterspace comes at a premium in your kitchen. But the upgraded, bamboo backing looks really nice, so it’s worth considering.
