So the magazine business…

stupid — commander flatus @ 2:32 pm April 10, 2011
is going bankrupt right here in the midst of the ereader picking up steam. I can go out and subscribe to any number of magazines for $5.99 to $12 per year, yet these same magazines cost $2.99 a month for the ereader versions.
Makes no sense at all. I won’t mind seeing more of them go away given their lack of any business sense at all. If they make money mailing me a color printed version for $10 a year, how about sharing the cost savings of the ereader version with the subscriber?

EDIT (5/22/2011): The Oxford American has it right. They get almost everything right, though. It’s the South, ya’ll.
