A number of print magazines have stopped printing in light of rising print costs and a shift to online mediums.

However, one of the suprise announcements is that Time Inc. is shutting down Life magazine. The company feels that the trend in magazine publishing is gravitating toward Internet publishing. It will maintain the magazine at, where you can still look up archived copies and covers like the one pictured that my family thinks resembles me. Unlike Janet Evanovich and her jelly donuts, my ashtray runneth over on my desk.

This is the third time that Life has been deep-sixed since 1972. Photo Credit:
