Time Inc., the country’s largest magazine publisher, has reached a deal with Apple to make all its iPad editions free for print subscribers, “marking a break in the impasse between publishers and Apple and lending support to Time’s contention that it’s business-as-usual after the ouster of its chief executive,” says “The Wall Street Journal” (http://macte.ch/cBkLZ).

Starting today (Monday), subscribers to “Sports Illustrated,” “Time” and “Fortune” magazines will be able to access the iPad editions via the apps, which will be able to authenticate them as subscribers. Time Inc.’s “People” magazine already had such an arrangement, but readers of most publications have had to pay separately for the iPad version regardless of their subscriber status.
