Newsweek? Time?

These are both dirt-cheap subscriptions at Amazon. Time got panned pretty heavily for its lack of pictures and charts. Nobody said much about the graphics of Newsweek. What do you guys think of the quality? Have you tried either? Both?

I don't read either, but I do get the Kindle edition of The Atlantic, which is missing all images. I've got one more print edition coming, so I'll check them against each other for content. I know that the newspapers editions are abridged, but I don't think the magazine editions are, with the exception of some images.

Newsweek has no images. I wonder if it's an AP copyright issue since I get a ton of blogs with images. Other than the lack of images, Newsweek is fine for me.

I'm very impressed with the Kindle version of Newsweek. No images, but the articles are easy to read and well-formatted, and it's relatively easy to navigate through the issue. I think I will miss the political cartoons, and it's a shame they don't include them.
