AN­NOUNCE­MENT: GURU MAG­A­ZINE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE – FOR GOOD.

Guru Magazine - - Guru News -

Cripes! Has it re­ally been three years al­ready? Yes, that’s right: Guru Mag­a­zine has been go­ing longer than many a celebrity mar­riage. As we reach our third an­niver­sary, we’ve de­cided that it’s time to freshen things up a lit­tle – so we’re try­ing some­thing new. Again.

Guru Mag­a­zine: reimag­ined

When we first set up shop (so to speak), we were do­ing some­thing pretty new. In May 2011, we launched Guru as a paper-free, dig­i­tal mag­a­zine that cov­ered sci­ence-themed stuff in a way that was un­der­stand­able and ac­ces­si­ble. Not long af­ter, we re­leased it in e-Reader and Kin­dle for­mats. And in March 2013, a cross-plat­form mo­bile app was re­leased, mak­ing it even eas­ier to dive into each is­sue. But now we want to use the lat­est tech­nol­ogy to make your en­joy­ment of Guru even slicker and sim­pler. All fu­ture Guru ar­ti­cles will be re­leased in an on­line for­mat, with­out the big down­load. It won’t be a bi-monthly is­sue like you’re used to, but in­di­vid­ual ar­ti­cles will be re­leased on a more reg­u­lar ba­sis. You will be able to read the new-look Guru on any de­vice in a for­mat that makes it look top-notch on what­ever size of screen you’re read­ing it – which means no more pinch­ing and zoom­ing on your smart­phone. Shar­ing, book­mark­ing and search­ing ar­ti­cles will also be much eas­ier. We think that the new Guru will be beau­ti­ful: the things you’ve grown to know and love about Guru over the last three years, served up in a shiny new way. There is one downside, how­ever: our tran­si­tion to newer tech­nolo­gies will take a lit­tle time – time dur­ing which we’ll need to be fo­cus­ing on things be­hind the scenes, rather than putting to­gether the next cou­ple of is­sues. But don’t shed a tear: ‘Ask a Guru’ will be con­tin­u­ing as usual and we’ll be putting fresh con­tent on our web­site. We’ll also be keep­ing you en­ter­tained with our witty one-lin­ers on twit­ter and Face­book. Plus, if you ask us re­ally nicely, we’ll even start an In­sta­gram photo collection of the ever-grow­ing pile of empty cof­fee cups. And ev­ery­thing will still be free for all to en­joy. Keep an eye on our web­site, our Face­book page, and our twit­ter feed for the lat­est up­dates on Guru 2.0. We’ll be back in the blink of an eye!
