huh

Surprised Carr doesn't know what he's talking about -- the industry is falling all over itself -- gutting itself -- on the ipad, at the expense of the only thing it has left to sell, good, steady content produced by professionals.

The big difference for books/print and music is that musicians can have concerts. Writers have nothing now.

magazine killer

At least one very profitable NYC based magazine just had its entire senior staff (of those earning under $500K) quit or is about to.

Why?

The ipad doubled their workload just after benefits and staff was cut. Not sure what the ipad, which I am fond of, is good for, without the decent content. Lots of those workers, some of the industry's most talented, have given up on the biz.
