In the age of mobile, people have grown accustomed to the beautiful interfaces on the latest smartphones and tablets. While fighting to improve the experiences of their own users, IT execs are also demanding the applications they use live up to those standards.
But as the leading tech publications – Information Age included – have berated those who have lagged behind in this transition, they have failed to acknowledge the sheer hypocrisy in their criticism: IT magazines look old, tired and ugly.
We wanted to change that, and can now introduce the brand new Information Age – the most attractive magazine for IT pros in the UK.
