High-Tech in the Kitchen: Electronic Delivery for Food Magazines?
With the release of the new Kindle coupled with Amazon’s recent move to make their e-books available to iPhone and iTouch users, our thoughts naturally gravitate to our favorite food magazines. Would you like to see them available electronically?
We only need to glance at our pile (er…make that “piles”) of magazine back-issues to know that yes, definitely, absolutely. We would love to start getting issues of Saveur, Gourmet, and our other favorite magazines delivered electronically.
From the standpoint of pure convenience, this would allow us to save and archive back-issues with a lot less fuss and clutter. If the electronic format were made search-able, this would also make finding that one recipe that you saw in that one article you read years ago much easier.
We think reading articles in on a computer screen might feel a bit awkward at first, but with the technology for e-book readers constantly improving, we have faith that we would adjust. Besides, we already spend a lot of time reading blogs and newspapers online, so adding magazines to the list doesn’t seem like too far of a stretch.
What do you think?
