Demand for downloads of digital magazines surges
Last year we predicted that Zinio was to become the leading provider of digital magazines. Our prediction seems to be right on track as the company is now reporting impressive growth rates:

I think I contacted Zinio about Iliad support. As I recall, I was either ignored or told to go away, don't bother us (well, they may have been more diplomatic but the result was the same). A lot of the free industry journals I get use Zinio.
Which begs the question, if the magazines I get are the freebies, why do they DRM the magazines out the wazoo, particularly when you can go to the website and capture the same information as html or download articles as a .pdf?

That's my guess anyway...

What I find frustrating about Zinio is their software. They announced their upgrade over a year ago and fixed none of the limitations. There should be an analogue zoom option, not just 1/3 or 1/2 page. Other controls are not user friendly and they have a habit of announcing something and then covering it up as though they never mentioned it. CPanel has fantastic controls yet a corporate entity can't come up with anything better. Their DRM can be a pain also.
That said, I use them. Hard to find Western magazines in China.
