These are the ones going "out of print".So what are the magazines that are dying off. I want to go buy the last issues.
Supposedly they'll be offered "on-line".So what's going to happen to current subscribers? I enjoy reading mags, and just signed up to 24 month subscriptions to Hot Rod, 4 Wheel &Offroad, and Car Craft. At <$1/issue it was cheap entertainment; and now two of them are going out of print.
For what it's worth - FB has an option to 'save' a post; click on the little option dots on the upper right of whatever you're looking at, and then it puts it into your 'saved' folder and you can bring it up later. I use the shit out of that feature, for the same reasonThat is the worst. I'll find an article I want to read on the FB, close my phone and go take a dump hoping to read it on the shitter, open up the app, and it's gone, and I have to spend 20 minutes searching manually, which sucks and usually finds everything *but* what I'm searching for, or I have to scroll down forever until I stumble across it.
or a completely different format? I know we are still using 8 tracks, VHS, cassette, reel to reel, CD, betamax still to this day in every home.
CDs? Don't like those new fangled things. I still have the factory cassette deck in my DD 90' Bronco. (A box of good cassettes)I'm only a few years older, and this is me, almost. I do use social media, but I still burn CDs to play in my truck.
Magazines turned for the worse in the late 80's. While advertising has always been a part of magazines (just read early hot rods) it seemed to me that the advertising started to take over the articles more and more, become more of a blatent shill for a product vs a more subtle more detailed shill for a product. And ads certainly didn't let up, if anything they seemed to proliferate the magazines. It basically drove me away from them. The randomn magazine I looked at, lots of frill but no substance so as far as I'm concerned, they've been on a downward slide since the late 80's, when, in my opinion they peaked and jumped the shark.Thoughts?
Facebook set the grounds back when they where only allowing college kids to register. You have a big audience of impressionable kids with idialistic views of the world. Add the zukerburg being of similar nature, things he tries since he doesn't have a good-old-boys style board to satisfy plays on the thinking patterns of college kids and sets the stage for the way things progress. Those college kids are now long out of college, and the facebook thing has shaped their thinking. And here we are, facebook is pervasive, and if you want to know about something going on facebook probably has it. Unfortunately. Fuck facebook.business' have had a rather interesting relationship with Facebook and likely to a lesser extend with IG, but it seems like FB early on started a bunch of the change.
