    If you’re a devoted subscriber to a print magazine, but you just got an iPad and want to read the digital edition instead, the only option to date has been paying full newsstand cover prices all over again for the same content. Now, though, Apple has relented, and free digital access for traditional subscribers should arrive for many in the near future. See Detail

    I have Zinio subs to a few magazines. A few others that want $5/issue (especially when I am already a print subscriber) can keep their e-editions to themselves.

    Apple was being pretty stupid about this. Imagine having to pay Microsoft every time a website updated their content and you were using IE.

    Apple's desire to get piece of every transaction on iOS devices borders on being insane. If they didn't relent, the publishers would have no choice but to go exclusively with Android apps.
