Went for a stroll to Chapters today at lunch, while passing the magazine rack I see from the corner of my eye the cover of Time Magazine behind other mags, only top 3rd of the cover is visible, I see a forehead and 1/3 of Gandhi specs...my heart skips a beat right away I assume it's our MAN on the cover.. I grab the mag...and POW!!

I quickly go through it to ensure enough content, -- good...then put it back to look for a pristine copy...found.

Looking forward to the read on the bus ride home, and adding it to my collection!

Ghandi is on the cover of Time Magazine?

Could he be referring to Apple's Steve Jobs?

It's online too. ;)

Apple iPad Launch: Will Steve Jobs' Magic Touch Return? - TIME (http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1976935,00.html)

Great article by the always enjoyable Mr. Stephen Fry - the second person in Britain to own a Mac, after his good friend Douglas Adams.

Stephen Fry* also writes an often funny tech blog on his web site (http://www.stephenfry.com) (not too many entries lately as he's under deadline for the second installment of his autobiography) and tech reviews for the Guardian in the UK.

*Stephen Fry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry) for those unacquainted with the wonderful Mr. Fry (Jeeves & Wooster, Fry & Laurie, Blackadder etc. etc.)

It must has been an old edition, "really old".

I picked up the iPad edition. At $4.99 per issue there won't be too many issues that I'll buy at that price but I thought it might be cool to have a copy of the first Digital edition of Time.

If they brought the price down, I could see myself reading more magazines this way, even subscribing and probably better overall for the environment.

When he said "our man" I thought that he was referring to the Mayor. ;)

LOL. :lmao:

The day I'm on the cover of Time will be the day I've probably done something really bad. "Time's bonehead of the year." :o :D ;)

That's pretty steep for a digital edition. Yes, there is convenience and immediacy of online content, but publishers that are intent on following old school print subscription prices will fail.
