Newsweek to Cancel Print Publication; Go All Digital

In what is likely to be an insurmountable shock to internet-averse grandpas and people stuck in doctors’ waiting rooms everywhere, eighty year-old magazine Newsweek has announced plans to go exclusively digital. The magazine’s December 31 issue will be its last dead-tree edition. Its digital successor, Newsweek Global, will offer subscription-based web content for pads, smart phones, eReaders and computers. Needless to say, the transition will end up costing quite a few people their jobs, but there are no estimates as of yet.
