Google Books… now with magazines

Yesterday Google announced the introduction of old magazines within the Google Books service. Google has been digitizing books for years, this addition is another step in Google’s vision of creating an online archive of the offline world (while taking over the world). Google Engineer Dave Foulser posted the update to the Google Blog, stating,

“Over time, as we scan more articles, you’ll see more and more magazines appear in Google Book Search results. Eventually, we’ll also begin blending magazine results into our main Google.com search results, so you may begin finding magazines you didn’t even know you were looking for. For now you can restrict your search to magazines we’ve scanned by trying an advanced search.”

For those interested in tech, Maximum PC and Mac Life magazines are already available. The archive of magazines is currently a working progress and if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for it can be hard to find anything you’re interested in.

Its always fun to read through a magazine 10 years past its best, take this copy of Maximum PC from 1998. Feast your eyes on this oh-so-sexy flat-panel monitor.
