    You have got to be kidding me!

    They are out of their Vulcan minds if they think I am going to pay $5 a week for digital content. That is $260 a year and they don't have to buy paper, print ink on it or send it to me in the mail?

    break it

    If I turned on my iPad and saw Kobe's smug face lookin back at me like that I would punch the screen. Straight up break it in half.

    Never enough

    If the NHL got the attention it deserves from SI, I might care.
    Might. Doubtful.

    I think they're going to need

    subscription prices because that $5 a week is a wee bit high. Magazines are going to need iAd to get extra revenue to lower prices.

    oh the p***, it burns!

    When the SI Swimsuit issue hits the stands, Apple will be sitting on the biggest iPr0n device out there. Scantily clad models in suggestive poses on a "gorgeous" 10 inch screen. Sounds like p*** to me, but I am guessing Apple will say that it's "art".

    But aside from that--$5, jeez. No way. Maybe that's the anti-p*** measures Steve talked about.

    For Wired Magazine to introduce a $4.99 replica of its print magazine, sort of makes sense because that's the news stand price. And they're going to drop that to $3.99 for the second issue anyway. Sports Illustrated is likely doing the same thing here. But to ask $4.99 for partial subscription content and free content is just insulting.
