Here is a nifty service, courtesy of Zinio. Apple iPhone users can browse full versions of 20 different magazines for free. Titles include Macworld, Lonely Planet, Popular Photography, Playboy and Penthouse.
But here is what makes it cooler; if you trick your browser into thinking it’s an iPhone, you can actually read these magazines for free on your desktop/laptop (PC or Mac).
You’ll need to change the "user agent" on your browser, which is easy to do in Safari or Firefox. In Safari just follow these instructions, and on Firefox you can add this extension and add the following iPhone user agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/4A102 Safari/419 (United States)
After that, simply point your desktop browser to this link and enjoy these free quality publications. If you are really smart, you can even download them locally to your computer to read on the flight.
