    Didn't we already have e-versions of mainstream magazines you could subscribe to in iOS?

    Confused :confused:

    Why would any professional put on a painter costume before announcing the launch of a new service for the most valuable company in the world??
    I don’t get it. I read a lot of the fashion mags he was showing off. NONE of them have foretold a trend of Sherwin Williams painter’s coveralls suddenly becoming board room/public presentation attire.
    Lol, off-topic I know... but it was jarring enough that I didn’t hear anything he said.
    I’m kinda hoping they stay with the theme- I want to see a plumber & a roofer, in full gear, announce details of the television service!

    This combines about 8 other subscriptions into one for me, and saves a ton of money. Definitely not complaining.

    I was looking for a hook to get me and didn't find it.
    I thought it would have to be under $5 to get me to even look at it.
    Boy did they miss that mark.
    $10/month for listening to a choice of a million songs vs $10/month for a couple of magazines I may look at for a few pages?
    No one raised their hand when this price was discussed?

    Also, can you say when you start the trial or does it start when you update to new app?

    A subscription service for out-of-date legacy media is something legacy media would want… but not consumers.

    So is Texture going to be discontinued and integrated into Apple News+? It’s owned by Apple and they didn’t say anything.

    Philosophically, I agree with the move.

    It disincentives click bait, and encourages content to make money off of time spent reading instead.

    The local Barnes & Noble has a similar service for no charge. People can just go in there and have access to hundreds of magazines and periodicals.:)

    Yes but you had to download apps for the magazine you were subscribed to. This is all in an already well built app. It will work, sign me up!

    I feel like I already have too much media in my life and I am always behind.

    They have to bundle this with an all-inclusive family plan of services including music and cloud storage for me to sign up.
