But then again, the lines have been blurred before. Ever read The Lord of the Rings with Tolkien's own illustrations? Or the Don Quixote with illustrations by Gustave Dore?

But I am less clear on magazines and newspapers. I have been reading the Financial Times in iPad as well and that has some videos as well - as the above National Geographic. I don't have a problem with that - the text is all there and the use of multimedia is optional. I don't see why an option should bother anyone.
