I am thrilled that an increasing number of the magazines I read for continuing professional education are providing PDF versions. This provides many benefits to the Information Security and IT professional.
- Less paper to handle, store or dispose of.
- iBooks and Good Reader save your place in the PDF.
- Easy to store back issues for future reference.
- Easy to search and make notes using your iPad.
The sources of the PDFs I read vary in their easy of access to the PDF and if you need to have an account to reach them. I download them from the source as they become available then I put them in my Dropbox.com account and open from my iPad using Good Reader a $0.99 application. Alternatively you can drop PDFs onto iTunes now and they will sync to your iPad using the iBooks app.
Here are the magazine sources I am frequently reading.
