Read Newsstand Magazines for Free on the iPhone

A very resource friend e-mailed me to let me know that Zinio is letting iPhone and iPod Touch users (and everyone with Safari installed) read mainstream magazines online.  


You're certainly not out of luck if you're not an iPhone user.  Some mobile devices allow you to install third party software.  If that is the case, you may be able to check out webkit or your mobile phone manufacturer to see if there's a solution for you.  Some Nokia phones have Safari-based webkit as their browser.  

And if you're a Windows users, Safari can be downloaded here. (Fatwallet has a forum talking about this and it seems like people are trying to figure out how to read the magazines without the iPhone or the iPod Touch.)

Zinio has a great selection.  US News, PC Magazine, Car & Driver, Macworld, Esquire.  And much much more. 

Yes, even Playboy.  People subscribe to them for the great articles.

No more need for that stack of magazine in the john.  Isn't technology wonderful?
