I love Wired Magazine and I am a subscriber to the print magazine. I only occasionally read the Wired site. The printed magazine has always been a piece of art and there have actually been years, when Wired was really difficult to read because of its cutting edge layout - remember?
More important than the design though, are the stories and the way Wired captures the culture and life-style for technology interested people. I do not want to say geeks as Wired is defining a wider scope of tech culture.
Wired and Adobe have now presented a digital version of Wired Magazine for Tablet computers and from what I have seen in the video below, I will be sticking to the print magazine.

The Wired Reader is currently an Adobe Air app, but is aimed at being available on all Tablet platforms including the Apple iPad.

The Wired Reader has all the bells and whistles you would expect of a digital magazine including videos, animations, social networking and advanced navigation.
The thing is though, that I do not need all that. I read Wired in bed before I fall asleep or on a relaxed evening on the couch. I want to dive into the stories of tech adventures or futuristic explorations. I do not need to watch a Dodge in 360 or disturb my quiet time with tweets.

Additionally, the whole notion of digital print layout pages with links to media just flashed me back to the early 90s and its Multimedia CD-ROMs. I miss the cutting edge appeal of Wired in the Tablet version.
Watch the Wired Reader presentation below. Via Wired.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
