2600 Magazine, The Hacker Quarterly, Now On Amazon Kindle

2600, the quarterly magazine that deals with hacker culture and issues affecting it, is now available on the Amazon Kindle store. It’s $3.95 a pop (I think I pay $6-something at the newsstand), meaning a full year is just under $12. That’s quite a deal, particularly since the magazine primarily text; there’s no fancy drawings or anything. I guess the “phones from around the world” part will lose something in the move to Kindle, but what are you gonna do?

Emmanuel Goldstein, the magazine’s editor (and something of a rallying post in the hacker world), said that “other platforms” are being explored, so it’s not a case of them favoring the Kindle for no good reason.

Yup, that’s it.
