Zinio.com


Zinio.com is a pretty cool service. Instead of having physical magazines delivered to you home, you can not have some magazines delivered to you electronically.


The electronic versions of the magazines are probably rendered from the original source material. Some of the interesting benefits of the electronic versions are:


  1. The urls become true hyperlinks

  2. The content is searchable

  3. It is very easy to retain an archive of the content, without taking a lot of physical space

  4. It is possible to send articles to people you know.





I have not signed up my self, because some of the magazines that I read are not available yet. They don't have Electronic House and Family Handyman. (The funny thing is that I learned about Zinio.com from an article in Electronic House. And Zinio.com has some of the competitors of Electronic House)
