Portrait and Landscape samples from Wired’s ePub

(This is the third part of our three part review of the new Wired Magazine epublication for the iPad – click here to return to part one.)

One of the clever things about the Wired ePub is that it reformats itself depending on if you’re holding the iPad in Portrait (ie vertical) or Landscape (ie horizontal) mode.

In the case of columns of simple text, this is relatively straightforward.  But with the advertisements, as you can see here, the photography has to be reshot to reflect the different perspective available for the ad, and then the entire ad is subtly set out differently. In the case of graphic pages such as to illustrate the start of a new article, there are various different approaches to alternate layout.  Here’s one sample, chosen more or less randomly (scroll on down to see).

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.
