I'm curious what others thought of the Wired iPad edition. I think it's an excellent indication of where magazines can go digitally, with more info available by touching hotpoints in the article, video, sound, and it has the best navigation I've seen in any mag. I'd love for my favorite mags (Car, Evo, and Octane) to adopt this and include the videos from their websites alongisde the text.
However, I agree with the criticism Wired has taken over the price. At $6.99, you're paying more than the paper edition, and even if the digital version is more expensive to produce than paper (which I doubt), that cost should be absorbed by the advertisers, who are getting a lot more bang for their buck (video, sound, hotpoint graphics).
The price is moot as far as I'm concerned. I was never a Wired reader and what I saw as far as content didn't change that. I was just curious about the execution of the concept.
