Magazines, Publishers, iPad, Flash – update

Does this article by James McQuivey (an analyst at Forrester Research) from PaidContent – which specifically refers to the plans of magazine publishers – throw light, heat or both on the subject?

In relation to Paul Lomax's tweet in my last post, I especially like this bit:

Apple is handing them a way to justify charging for content. And they like this very, very much. In fact, one publisher came dangerously close to scrapping Flash development altogether (before his internal tech experts talked him out of it) because he realized that in the end, Apple is handing them something the Web never has: a controlled, curated content environment where people pay for content, albeit in the form of software calls apps.
