Another (loud, fuzzy) peek at Wired's tablet edition
What will Conde Nast magazines look like once they show up on tablet computers made by Apple, Hewlett-Packard, and others? This video gives you an idea.

Conde has a demo video it has been showing to advertisers, employees, and plenty of other people, including me. It gives you a pretty good overview of what the publisher and Adobe, who is building the software to produce and view the magazines, have in mind. But it's turned down my request to show the clip to my readers.
That doesn't mean you can't see it, though. If you're in New York City, you can troop down to the promotional "store" that Wired magazine sponsors each year, located this time in the Meatpacking District (keep an eye peeled for the Betaworks guys). The publisher is showing off at least part of the clip there, and you can see some of it in this YouTube clip below (thanks to Brian Chen for spotting):
Obviously, it's a much better experience if you can watch the video directly, instead of through someone else's video camera. Also, I think you'd prefer to see it outside of the store, where you're not subjected to slit-your-wrists techno music. So perhaps this will prompt the Conde folks to put the entire clip out in public.
In the meantime, here's a gallery of Saturday Night Live cast members and other sort-of-famous people checking out the store.
