The magazines have been given a look of archived newspaper. You can browse different covers of a magazine or dive into a specific issue and turn the scanned pages, which come complete with all of the old advertisements. You can search within an issue. Not only that, you have facilities to zoom in and zoom out and also, the feature to integrate Google Maps with the mentioned places inside the articles is also there.
Though there is a lot to be done in this regard and most importantly, Google should add other print magazines in it. Hopefully its just a test run and once successful they will add loadsa other magz in it.
One thing is for sure, print media should be thankful to Google that at last its in a safe hand.
