Popular Science

Is it possible to take something like Popular Science's complete archive and have it translated to a Kindle friendly format? All past issues are freely-available for viewing on their webpage, but having them available on a Kindle for extra mobility would be fantastic.

Yeah, looks like it... very disappointing, too, AFAIK. I was hoping they would eventually do a fully digital transfer of their content. As a subscriber since my teens, I'd love to have their catalog in a truly digital format. But page images aren't worth the trouble to digitize.
