Print on Demand Meganews Magazine Kiosks to Compete Against EMagazines

With the spread of tablet computers and book readers such as the Kindle, one would think that the days of the printed book and magazine are numbered. But a company called Meganews Magazines is trying to save the latter.

With the spread of tablet computers and book readers such as the Kindle, one would think that the days of the printed book and magazine are numbered. But a company called Meganews Magazines is trying to save the latter.

The way it works is that instead of a newsstand stuff full of magazines and newspapers with a bored clerk who has the constantly chase away browsers ("This aint a library!") an automatic kiosk with a series of touch screens is situated in some retail space or even along a street. The customer is able to use the screens to browse through the latest issues of magazines which have been uploaded by the publishers to the mains server. If he or she finds something to their liking, he or she pays by credit card and, within two minutes, a printed copy of the magazine is produced to be carried away and read at leisure.

The main advantaged being touted is that selling magazines as print on demand not only saves money for publishers, who don't have to produce large runs of their magazines and then physically ship them to thousands of retail locations around the world, but it lessens the environmental impact of having a certain number of unsold magazines every week or month that have to be dealt with. That saves landfill space as well as recycling costs.

As of this writing, Meganews offered 200 magazines and newspaper at a location in Stockholm, Sweden.

The question arises, can Meganews compete with tablets and book readers that can, at least in theory, download versions of almost every magazine, newspaper, and book on the planet? One suspects that the technology would have been a hit in the year 2000 or so before ebooks and emagazines became common. At best it will serve a niche market in such areas where tablets and book readers are still rare and for people who still prefer to have something printed in their hands.
