in Entertainment (E)

[prMac.com] New York, NY - Popular Science today is pleased to announces the update to their iPad edition, Popular Science+, with the newly released December issue, featuring the annual "Best of What's New" awards and adding to the long list of iPad-only functions.

Highlights from the December issue include "Predict-A-Quake", a look at predicting earthquakes before they happen, "Sharp-Dressed Man" showcasing and iPhone-controlled LED suit, and the "Best of What's New", PopSci's 23rd annual guide to the 100 greatest technological achievements of the year across 11 categories, including Green, Automotive, Health, Aviation & Space, Home Technology and much more.

Popular Science is not a new player to the iPad magazine market, but has led the field since launching for the iPad in April. Popular Science has implemented embedded video, links and photo galleries to further enhance and illustrate editorial content. Users can watch the simulated video of a proposed NASA railgun scramjet taking off for flight that accompanies this month's "Express Train To Space" article. And they can go in-depth with exclusive photo galleries - not seen in the magazine - from the Best of What's New awards package.
