But this “money shot” of Kate and Will has extra-earning potential, according to the Yahoo! post, because, wait for it, Kate is wearing a black bikini. Click here: http://ca.shine.yahoo.com/blogs/love-sex/honeymoon-photos-kate-middleton-prince-william-stir-controversy-181100199.html
What, no commentary on Will’s boxers? Or the Walkie Talkie he appears to be holding?
So much of what often influences blockbuster sellers is timing. So, despite the fact that the RIM story is a bit, well, a downer, and the cover is black, the topic is certainly one that is generating tons of media coverage, has tongues wagging, and has stock holders clinging to the edge of their seats.
Art director John Montgomery says, “For our End of RIM story, we knew that we wanted a cover that would feel like a memorial for the company, and that it should be quiet and somber. Editor Duncan Hood started with the simple line: “Research in Motion (1984-2012).” The choice of black was decided upon immediately, and the eclipsed BlackBerry came from an early mock-up. Then we added the “It didn’t have to come to this” line to capture the regret and anger of seeing Canada’s largest tech company fall from such heights. Once that was completed, we realized that any additional cover lines would simply clutter the design. The choice to remove our usual red band in the name-plate was decided upon at the very last minute, but once we did that we knew that we had something very interesting for Canadian Business magazine.
Interesting indeed. We will report back with a check-up later in the year.
It’s a good send up on the formulaic covers that work so well for magazines like Cosmopolitan.
It’s also a good reminder that we don’t want to become so stuck on rules that we become a parody of oursleves. After all, we still want to delight and surprise our readers.
On the other hand, it’s easy to mock success, much harder to generate the newsstand sales that Cosmopolitan typically turns in. Cosmo’s ABC statements from 2011 show that they sold over 18 million single copies, with newsstand sales making up 50% of their total ratebase. I think they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Yes, I did just see the Spiderman movie, and the actress turned in a great performance. My guess is that she has made a lot of new fans, who will be eager to snap up this issue to learn more about her.
The UK edition is interesting too. Nice hat.
