Is This Really the Future of Magazines?

MBCook writes “Interfacelab has put up a review of Wired’s new iPad app, and declared ‘The only real differentiation between the Wired application and a [1990s] multimedia CD-ROM is the delivery mechanism.’ While providing little interactivity other than a fancy page-flip, the application is made of XML and images, including two for the text of each page in portrait and landscape mode. This seems to be why the application is 500MB. The article suggests this was done to get the app out quick after Flash was officially vetoed by Steve Jobs.”
