Why magazines are forcibly displaced in time from the Web
I consider here just the current computer screen in my hands. This is perhaps the second Issue I got myself this year. And I note again that it is not really worth it to buy CB. First, the programs are on the CD booklet mostly freeware, which is software that gives it's for free on the internet anyway. This time is for example the "COMPUTER BILD multi-messenger" on the CD. Uhhh, a multi-messenger. One looks in more detail in the magazine, it is merely a pimped version of Miranda (which it is by the way also for free on the net).
Secondly, it is not worth to buy more magazines, because the products (mainly news) simply are old again, when you hold the sheet of paper in her hands.
Here are a few examples to help you understand what I mean. You look on page 8, it is reported there on the free online encyclopedia, which now also offers the service to create books and PDF's of articles. You have to say that this issue of the computer image was published on 16.02.2009. My article on the new wiki feature was already on 06.02.2009. So a full 10 days in advance.
Another example: Leafing through 4 pages on to page 12, we see there half-page article about the 4 programs free of Magix. My article this came on 26 January! That's over 20 days, which came before my article.
There are dozens of other examples just yet on how much the web has become 2.0, how fast simple journals are trumped by them. This is simply because, as magazines and newspapers are an outdated medium. On paper, I find a message on the next time most days, in the web after a few minutes. I remember the crash, which was reported at Twitter first. It said then tweet: "Here is a plane in the river". The news spread like a rocket, and instantly everyone knew. Everyone on the web.
Another advantage is that you get the news on the web, for we are interested in really. Here I get what I need exactly tailored to me, according to my needs. To conclude that print media in my opinion-are on the decline and they are-at least to the news part-save. For news I learn quickly on the Internet.
