Our Rating: ★★★½☆ :: NOT QUITE WIRED FOR THE IPAD :: Read Our Full Review >>

WIRED's first take on iPad magazines is ambitious but ultimately falls short of its goal of redefining the magazine for the digital age.

In the February issue of WIRED, enter the battle over the NSA’s surveillance program. Senior staff writer Steven Levy chronicles how Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and other tech titans have had to fight for their lives against their own government. It’s a trip inside their year from hell, and an exploration of why the web will never be the same.

• How one man hacked OKCupid to find the girl of his dreams.
• Monsanto (yes, that Monsanto) shuns GMOs for nature’s path.
• Greetings from Zappotopia, Tony Hsieh’s new tech mecca in Las Vegas.
• Legendary music producer Rick Rubin talks Spotify, the Beasties, and Kanye.
• Meet the characters that helped Lego conquer the toy industry.

It’s the WIRED vision of how technology is shaping the future, and it features content not available in the print magazine.

CURRENT APP USERS: Once you install the latest version of the WIRED app and accept an upgrade to iOS 5, the WIRED icon on your iPad will disappear— you’ll now find WIRED in your Newsstand folder. Tap the image of our cover to read the latest issue and access your library. If you choose not to do both of these actions, the WIRED icon will remain on your device and the app will remain accessible through it. In addition, to take advantage of having the latest issue automatically downloaded on to your device, go into your Settings on your iPad, select “Store” and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.

SUBSCRIBERS’ AUTOMATIC-RENEWAL FEATURE: Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period (another year for annual subscribers, another month for monthly subscribers) unless you change your subscription preferences in your account settings. You can manage your subscriptions through your Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.
