Pocket is slaughtering The Verge features!
Being here on The Verge forums, I've met all sorts of people. And suffice it to say, they are very different. Some like Google, some Apple, and some Microsoft. Pretty much no one agrees on each and every subject. But it's safe to assume that we all (writers and readers akin) love two things: The Verge's feature formats ("dat format!") and Pocket (I know that some prefer Instapaper, but since most do Pocket and your choice of read-it-later service doesn't matter much in this context, I'm just gonna assume, for the rest of the article that everyone uses Pocket).
But it hurts to see when these don't work together. Pretty much each and every Verge feature brings a new format with it, sometimes even using new fonts. But when added to Pocket, those fonts, and especially those formats are rolled into one homogeneous format along with the other thousands of articles we save. Not that it makes the article ugly in any way, but it seems to destroy the general feel of the article as opposed to the version on the site here.
Also, I recently discovered that if the article had a video hosted from where The Verge normally has it, it doesn't get saved to Pocket too, unless it's from YouTube, since the iPad mini review used YouTube and is the only one of my saved articles which has an embedded video. Now this one isn't that big a problem, but the former is.
Not that it is Pocket's fault in any way whatsoever, but that is just unfair to those formats and the work put in to create them. Something needs to be done about this.
Enter The Verge's digital magazine, a free monthly issue distributed via the official app of The Verge and from the site here, which holds all of the previous month's feature articles in full glory along with a month-in-review article and reviews of major products.
I can't judge the added work for this magazine, but I'm sure that the folks over here can manage it.
What do you guys think about this? Should The Verge have a digital magazine? Lay your opinions down in the comments.
