Re: CAR Magazine on Zinio or iPad
Ha ha, unfortunately over at Car Towers in Peterborough, an I pad ( eye pad ) is a large piece of cotton wool on elastic that you wear after getting some of the crud off Tim Pollards 5 series estate in your eye. Zinio is what they think Sj should clean the sink with after making all that tea and coffee. You probably won't get a reply soon as they are invariably busy melting lead for the new type face ready for the compositor. The new boy Hamilton would normally be along but he does the chimney of a Friday and sometimes gets stuck. Best send them a Telegram ;)
Funnily enough Reg one of the CAR team had an eye infection on Friday... do you have sources in P'boro to provide you with this uncannily accurate info?
Although Paoj's question is best left to the editors to respond to officially, I can confirm a few things:
1) SJ doesn't have to fetch the tea and coffee - it's a collective responsibility
2) The telegram system is very temperamental so we often have to use carrier pigeons to receive Herr Kacher's reports from Europe.
3) The chimneysweeps. Through our links in Germany, we will soon be receiving one of Mr Gottlieb Daimler's internal combustion engines to power the office, doing away with the coal-fired boiler. It's all very exciting...
Speaking purely on a personal level, I enjoy reading and collecting the print edition of CAR. A digital edition would be good, but at this point I'd be happy with full functionality of the comments area/forum for iOS devices.
Paoj, are you reading any other motoring publications on Zinio or through iPad apps? If so, which ones, and can you tell us what features you like best on the ones you are reading?
