Little Printer Turns Your Digital Life Into A Mini-Newspaper

BERG Cloud Little Printer

The Little Printer from BERG Cloud is a compact, inkless, thermal printer that uses wi-fi to connect to the web and print out a timely, beautiful mini-newspaper based on subscriptions that you set up using your smartphone.

When you’re ready, just hit the print button, tear off the latest ‘issue’ and take it with you, giving you information on the go and turning your digital life into an analog journal.

Check out the demo video below for a preview:

The device won’t be ready until 2012, but you can give them your email on the BERG Cloud site to get notified of when they’re ready to ship.

…It’s Things Thursday: Field Notes?

Filed Notes Subscription

Field Notes are “honest memo books, worth fillin’ up with good information”.

They were inspired by

the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list.

Though normally available with a brown cover, Field Notes offers a ‘Colors’ subscription service for those that want to add some variety, and want to make sure they always have a fresh Fields Notes book on hand.

The subscription service includes 24 very-limited-edition memo books (only 100 subscriptions are available) spread out over the year in four different colors/styles. For summer, the color is “Grass Stain Green”, while Fall, Winter and Spring of 2009 still remain gigantically top secret.

If you’re the type of person that likes to write everything down, but you like to do it with style, sophistication and exclusivity, then check out Field Notes and pick up a subscription.

…Time magazine wants to make you Mine?

Mine Magazine

To combat dropping subscription numbers, Time Inc. has created Mine magazine, a magazine that’s created especially for you.

To make one, just pick from up to eight of their magazines, answer a few ‘seemingly random’ questions, and then in two weeks, the first of your Mine issues will arrive.

Each issue will include stories tailored specifically to your interests, whether providing timely financial advice, helping to find the perfect golf club, or inspiring your next vacation.

Mine might not save print media, but at least they’re doing something to slow the death!

…Zinio is giving away free magazines?

Zinio Read Green Initiative

Edit: This promotion is no longer active.

Zinio takes many of your favorite magazines and republishes them digitally, so to help spread the word about their rather environmentally friendly service, they created the Read Green Initiative to give away free magazine subscriptions to anyone that asks.

For a limited time, you can get a year-long subscription to magazines like Men’s Journal, Shutterbug, Road and Track, Popular Science, Outside and even Penthouse for little more than an email address.

In addition, they don’t take your mailing address or ask you to put down a credit card ‘deposit’, so there’s no need to worry about canceling your subscription at the end of the year in order to avoid getting charged.

If you’d like to preview what the service is like, just select from one of the magazines below, and if you’d like to sign up for your own free magazine subscription, just visit the site and select from the available options. (They’re first come, first served, so grab the one you want quickly before it’s gone.)
