Apple has launched Subscriptions on the App Store yesterday and ignited a big controversy, but the first magazine subscriptions are on sale on iTunes including Popular Science, Elle, Nylon and of course The Daily. These first offers get me already totally riled up to get an iPad. The imagination to be able to subscribe to any magazine around the globe digitally has me excited. Now I just need to wait for the iPad 2 and hope publishers arrange themselves with Apple's subscription model.

The new subscription service available to all publishers of content-based apps on the App Store, including magazines, newspapers, video, music, etc. This is the same digital subscription billing service that Apple recently launched with News Corp.’s The Daily app. The controversial issues are that for starters Apple takes a 30% share on the subscription fee. Apple also requires that apps cannot link to the content outside of the app. Additionally if the publisher sells digital content outside of the Apple eco-system, they need to offer it for the same price or less in the Apple universe.

The Popular Science Magazine subscription for the iPad is selling for $14.99 per year. This is fine for me. Bring on more magazines and a digital newsstand. Right now the magazines are listed as normal apps in the iTunes store. And where is the Wired Subscription already? I don't pay $3.99 for an issue.

To find the new iPad Magazine subscriptions go to the iTunes App store and select iPad. Apple is promoting the new subscriptions on top.

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.
