Recent RexLinks are items I’ve bookmarked on Google Reader:
- iPad, iPhone Google Docs editing | Google – Now I can use my iPad for something more than consumption. (Sorry, lame inside joke.)
- 16 Months Later, Say Hello To Google Voice For The iPhone. It Was Worth The Wait – I agree with MG. The native iPhone app is great.
- Google Debuts Fashion Shopping Site | NYTimes.com – Fashion? Mountain View? I'm just saying.
- Open source magazine for teens lets readers copy its content | Springwise – This Springwise piece about a South African magazine for teens that is "open-source" asks if that's a coming trend. While not "open source," the company called Reiman Publications (purchased by Readers Digest for something like $760 million back before Readers Digest value jumped off a cliff) has an entire lineup of magazines that have had two radical concepts since the 1980s: All the articles are submitted by readers ("winning" writers get $250 for an article) and the magazines' revenue is (or, at least, was) from subscriptions.
- Hospital bans waiting-room magazines | The Globe and Mail – That's great. Not only are magazines going to die, they're also going to kill you. How did we ever live through those Highlights magazines? (Note: I don't believe the magazine is going to die anytime soon, nor do I believe they are going to make you sick.)
