All signs point to a lot of iPad like tablet devices coming soon, quite a number of them by Christmas. The iPad has unlocked a new content form, much closer to a clickable magazine.
Many years ago Steve Case envisioned a selectable newscast. Users would click on the stories they wanted and the system would compile a custom newscast. We could argue if that ever materialized but the iPad, and this Vook format, offer some interesting new presentation opportunities. The idea of the “linear” presentation is changing. Cross-talk then currents then almanac then area temperatures then radar then satellite then forecast model then today then tonight then tomorrow then extended.
What would your forecast magazine look like? You can build it.
