Time Magazine is Unhappy with iPad Publishing


Is Apple screwing with it’s publishers? Seems so according to this report by Matt Hartley
writing for cooltechzone :

Considering all of the hype built up around the iPad’s potential influence with the print media, one might think they’d be a little more happy about what it could do for them. No such luck. Seems that there are publishers out there that feel that the iPad spells real trouble for their own efforts, despite any previously conceived ideas of mutual benefit.

AllThingsDigital reports that Time Inc. is up in arms over how Apple is handling the way Time offers subscriptions to their users. In short, Apple says no dice. That’s correct, Apple is not allowing Time to manage their subscriptions they way the publisher would like. This means Time is not handling the money going back and forth, despite Apple allowing others such as Amazon to do this early on.
