For those of you who have a tendency to forget, Google is not really a web services company, or a mobile platform company, or even a search company. No, Google is an advertising company which uses the revenue from ad placement to fund almost all of its other endeavors. Now, Google can say that it generates more in ad revenue than all American print media combined...

No wonder they're becoming more famous and richer than Apple!

In a strange way, Google is a .com company that actually works.

Amazing that the magazine and newspaper industry is still surviving when you think about it

If you look carefully, magazines aren't growing, but neither are they really shrinking. That makes sense in a weird way, they can do things that a blog will have trouble with, and they have been better about adapting to the new digital medium.

I remember back in the 80's where people speculated about the end of print media where in the future people will be reading everything on a screen rather than on paper. Then in the 90's what actually happened is that offices actually used even more paper than before due to computers. It is in the 00's that I noticed that my use of paper has declined. I have also let my subscriptions to magazines expire.
The last two magazines that I used to subscribe to was a gaming mag that got cancelled because when the issue was available, much of the information was out of date, thanks to the internet. The other is a TV Listings magazine, partly due to finding the same or better info online or off my cable box and partly due to my watching less TV.
