Is IT Print Media Doomed?

magazines
I used to read several free computer magazines every week. Now I find that when I puruse the tree-based media that the news is old hat - it's over three days old! Ancient news.
True the longer articles are not so time based, but still alot of the content is often stale. I find myself reading them less and less. I think the print version will gradually lose critical mass and fade to the online version.
What do you think? Are the IT magazines doomed?

Totally agree. I go online to get all my info because it's so up to date. But the 'tree based media' (nice phrase) is still good for pics and coffee tables. :)
