The new century has brought new technologies, different web portals adapted to all ages, and print media and magazines are not as current as they used to be. Magazines and different daily, weekly and monthly prints are read to find out about life-related news that we are interested in, as well as to feel the flair of the paper and the press in which the magazine has been printed.
