Loaded: A new way to read magazines on a tablet

2:52 /

Grooveshark is in trouble, Marvel puts a new spin on digital comics, and Next Issue is a new way to get your magazine fix on your tablet.

It's Wednesday, April 4, 2012. I'm Bridget Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Yahoo announced it will lay up...2,000 of it's employees in a statement, Yahoo said it's restructuring...is to make the company (nimbler?) and more profitable. The lay ups reportedly will save yahoo about $375 Million in annual cost. The troubled media company currently employees about 14,000 people around the world. Tablet owners can now get unlimited access to many leading US magazines for just one monthly price. It's called Next Issue and the services like Netflix for magazines for $10 a month the tablet app provides access to 27 monthly titles such as Money, Vanity Fair and Popular Mechanics. For $15 a month it adds weekly titles like Time, People, Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly. Currently it's only available for Android Tablets but in iPod version is coming soon. The online music service Grooveshark has lost the rights just (??) music from EMI one of the top 4 record companies. EMI was the only major music label to work with Grooveshark and with no big music label contract Grooveshark future is (merking?). In a statement Grooveshark said the cost to stream EMI's music was unsustainable. More than 1 million users downloaded the Android Version of the Instagram app in less than 24 hours after it's release. The free photo sharing and editing app has been popular in Apple's iTune store since it launch in 2010 it was even named Apple's iPhone app of the year in 2011. Instagram let users put color filters and retro affects on photos and then share them on the Instagram network or on other social media sites. Unlimited data just isn't what it use to be. Now the no contract MetroPCS is throttling data speeds for customers. The top unlimited plan for MetroPCS has jumped to $70 a month and it's unlimited everything. Video, Music and no slowing down the speed. But with the $60 a month plan users only get (forgie?) speeds for the first 5 gigs of data use. After that speeds drop dramatically to 3G or slower. Marvel Superheros are going to a digital mutation. Marvel has introduce a new way to present comic (??) on a tablet like (passing?) before showing texture, painting the camera through an action shot. It's called infinite comics and you can catch the first instance of this a Avengers versus X-Men number 1 in the Marvel Comics app. There's also a new Marvel AR App that let's readers use there phone with the printed edition to pull up bonus animation that brings the pages to life. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Bridget Carey for CNET.com and you just been loaded.
