Acclaimed Voice in Entertainment Journalism Paste Revitalizes Magazine as Digital Weekly

PASTE.COM Joins PasteMagazine.com on February 27th as Newest Offering from Award-Winning Media Group

DECATUR, Ga., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paste Media Group, publisher of online popular culture destination PasteMagazine.com, today announced the launch of PASTE.COM, a new members-only digital magazine reviving the tradition of Paste's award-winning print magazine (published 2002-2010) in an online format. PASTE.COM is ideal for longer reads, listening to new music and enjoying exclusive video, while PasteMagazine.com will continue to live on as a news website. On the heels of Paste Media Group's most profitable year to date, reaching its largest audience in its 14-year history, the introduction of PASTE.COM will continue to evolve the landscape of entertainment journalism.

PASTE.COM fulfills a vision for the natural integration of visual and audio content with text, an integration that was impossible through print, and yet considered essential among entertainment publications. Offering a curated premium-content site that delivers a new issue every Tuesday along with the acclaimed Paste New Music Sampler (featuring seven weekly downloads to complement the editorial features), PASTE.COM combines the romance of print with the sensory experience of online.

"In the days of our print magazine, we always wanted to show in addition to tell—and the integration of video, music and photo galleries delivered through PASTE.COM finally gives us an opportunity to fulfill that vision for what an entertainment magazine really should be," explains Paste founding editor-in-chief Josh Jackson.

Paste's loyal audience and their demand for authenticity and creativity were the catalyst for the launch of PASTE.COM. Garnering nearly three million unique monthly visitors in less than a decade thanks to avid readers, PasteMagazine.com and its former print companion Paste received numerous accolades including three consecutive National Magazine Award nominations for excellence, dozens of Plug, Folio and Gamma Awards as well as recognition from leading voices in journalism including USAToday, theNew York Daily News and The Wall Street Journal, who called Paste "the finest among American music titles."

"We are eager to now share one of most amazing features of PASTE.COM – our incredible video library – to further enhance our readers' experience," said founding publisher Nick Purdy. "We have vintage live video from our sister company Concert Vault including legends like The Band, Joni Mitchell and Miles Davis, plus exclusive performances from recent Paste events and special festival sessions featuring groups like The Lumineers, The Civil Wars and Of Monsters & Men."

PASTE.COM is delivered via web browsers rather than an app and is optimized for Apple iPads and Android tablets like Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire, making PASTE.COM content extremely simple to share via Facebook, Twitter and Email.

Members can enjoy PASTE.COM for $2.99 per month or $35.88 per year. Those who purchase an annual membership by March 26th will also receive an exclusive DVD featuring live performances from The Civil Wars, Vintage Trouble and Rubblebucket, all recorded at Paste's showcases during SXSW. Visitors to PASTE.COM will have access to a free 7-day trial of the digital magazine.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
