hwm goes digital

Well, we technically went digital 8 years ago. Our first tablet edition of HWM appeared on digital newsstands in October 2011.

This issue of HWM that you’re holding in your hands - and I’m going to assume that you’re holding a physical copy and not reading this on your tablet - will be the very last print edition of HWM.

meet the new fujifilm instax mini link more than just a smartphone photo printer, it’s a fun party printer

With the amount of photos we shoot on our smartphones, the portable photo printer business is booming.
