PC Magazine Goes 100% Digital

It has been recently announced that PC Magzine will no longer offer it's "paper" services, opting to switch to the internet as its only business medium. Below is an excerpt by the Editor-in-Chief of PC Magazine in a letter to his readers:

"The January 2009 issue (Volume 28, Issue 1) of PC Magazine will mark a monumental transition for the publication. It is the last printed edition of this venerable publication. Of course, as with any technology-related enterprise, this is not the end, but the beginning of something exciting and new."

I wonder if this is something we will be seeing more of in the not-too-distant future. When I get a magazine, there's more advertising than real content. I fear the Magazine Industry is a dying breed, and those who have a substantial stake in it (PC Mag) are seeking refuge elsewhere.
