In the August issue of WIRED, writer Amy Maxmen explores how a new gene-editing tool will usher in the post-natural world. It’s called Crispr, and it makes altering DNA as easy as cut-and-paste. It could eliminate disease. It could solve world hunger. It could provide unlimited clean energy. It could really get out of hand.

No landscape mode? No subscription (after 15 years of being a subscriber)

I am stunned by Conde Nast’s decision to remove landscape mode from Wired, that is grade-A B.S. Tablets, like all portable digital devices, are designed to be flexible in their usage, and this absurd restriction is literally cutting that flexibility in half. Reading anything on an iPad in portrait mode is, at least for me, *incredibly* annoying, since I can’t set it up on the table, arm chair, etc. to read it without holding it (most cases aren’t designed with that mode in mind), so I have to physically hold the device up in the air while I try to eat my breakfast. Screw that. Ironically, I might not even have noticed the change if they had opted for landscape mode instead.

I’ve read and loved Wired for almost 15 years. I was annoyed at having to cancel my paper subscription in order to *just* get the digital edition (even though the latter cost more money), but this is the last straw. I’m sorry to see it go, but I simply can’t enjoy reading it in such an awkward manner.

What I expect from wired

This is my first digital subscription so maybe I'm ignorant of what exactly I should be expecting but I really think WIRED is doing a great job of taking advantage of all the capabilities of digital publishing. The interactive elements are very well integrated and enhance the experience rather than distracting from it. And while it might seem like a lot of adds to some I had no objections there. The features themselves are all self contained and uninterrupted by advertisement. Sounds like a lot of people are having technical issues but I can't speak to that, it works great for me.

Not sure why all the bad reviews

I think people have to go out of their way to review this app, and I'm pretty sure most people have absolutely no issues. Yah, there can be some quirky behavior at time, but this app is a great way to experience wire magazine. Years later it still is pushing the bar for interactivity and an immersive experience. This app is one of my favorite ways to enjoy wired magazine.

I wish they could add rules for the auto remove feature. That would be excellent.
