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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
