It’s been a while since Omni has been in publication, but the sci-fi magazine from the founder of Penthouse was one of the most amazing, geekiest things back in the day, a magazine not quite like anything else. And if you miss Omni like I do, or if you’re wondering what it’s all about, the Internet Archive now has nearly every issue available to read online or for download.
For eighty years, Newsweek has been a mediocre, cheap and time-killer of a publication, proudly gracing the backs of toilets and the tables in doctor’s waiting rooms.

In this week’s edition of the Spanish publication Magazine Fuera de Serie, Michelle Obama’s face was poorly photoshopped onto the body of a portrait from 1800 of a bare breasted slave woman.

Newsweek says it will eventually drop print and go online only. Why can’t Newsweek just go away entirely?
According IAC/InterActive Corp, the parent company of Newsweek, the 79 year old magazine will eventually be completely moving away from having a print edition to be online or digital only. But what else will doctors use to fill up the tables in waiting rooms? Oh right… Time or Highlights.

There was even a magazine for this hobby called Girl Watcher, that offered voyeur photos and tips on how to be a creeper without being caught.
Yesterday, appropriately on April Fool’s Day, MAD Magazine launched for the iPad and as a long time MAD fan, I highly recommend the experience. It’s only $10 for a yearly subscription or $2 per issue individually, and since you’re getting it on the iPad, it’s ad-free, just like MAD Magazine used to be.
