Teen Talkbackwww.networkshe.com77By Bradley KennedyWe let the youth of today have their sayDigital Magazines, Interactive Newspapers and eBooks. What on earth? Yes, today's society is getting ever more technologically advanced. With the introduction of the Kindle and iBooks for Apple devices, downloadable books have been a global success! For all you tech novices out there, this means that people can now get books on their mobile devices and store thousands of them to read at any given time. It seems to be catching on with more and more people ditching with tradition and moving from hardback to software. With the ever-growing collection of Apples 700,000 books alongside Amazons 765,000 books you are spoilt for choice.Companies are now making it easier to set up subscriptions and have automatic updates of newspapers. You can wake up in the morning and pick up your device, which has automatically downloaded the mornings paper, and sit and read it even before you get on the train.Overall the books may be cheaper (averaging around £0.99) and the whole idea is more environmentally friendly, but the gross amount of books one may buy is increasing exponentially meaning it is far easier to spend more than you usually would. Not only that, but the variety of magazines and books is becoming more widespread, you can now download articles ranging from technology to fashion and health.When Apple introduced the iPad and iBooks it opened a whole new category for tablet newspapers and magazines. Magazines where you could manipulate pictures, zoom and rotate, they even have interactive games and adverts, the possibilities are endless. With a lot of the choices being free downloads, people are downloading in the millions. It does make you wonder if 10 years from now, will we all be reading the daily news from our tablets? Would companies even bother printing on paper at all? It would be a world with extremely less waste but extremely more internet traffic! Just something to think about.Bradley KennedyA WORLD run by MACHINES

78Network She I Autumn/Winter 2012Stefani Germanotta - or more commonly known across the globe as Lady Gaga has indeed found her calling card within the music industry and is making musical history. Her first two albums 'The Fame' and 'The Fame Monster' differ greatly to her newer release; 'Born This Way' - which shows more emotion and passion in her music and lyrics. I personally think her latest album is a great way for her to connect with her fans all over the world by relating her music to problems they may face themselves. The actual song 'Born This Way' is all about ignoring the haters, staying true to ourselves and being beautiful in our own way - oh, Gaga, you softy. There has been a lot of talk about whether Gaga is about to top Madonna's role at being queen of pop; of course most have thought this idea barbaric but rumour has it that poor Madonna nearly put out her hip attempting the 'Marry The Night' choreography that Gaga does so flawlessly. Sorry Madge, but you're getting on a bit. Not only is Lady Gaga an insanely successful singer-songwriter; she is also well known for her charity work and support for all her gay fans. Gaga stands as a magnificent role model within the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community and often makes speeches both in and out of songs and tours. I think this is truly terrific and being a fan myself I can really connect with her and, she has indeed taught me that there's no shame in being who we are and we are all born this way. Just like any die-hard Lady Gaga fan would claim, she has given me an entire new perspective in life and she's altered my view on not only myself, but the people around me.Of course, though, she is not all that holy and saint-like - there are a few other characteristics of our beloved Gaga that are a little wilder and in some people's opinions 'too weird'. Gaga's wardrobe is just phenomenal; anybody who has seen her perform or seen videos of her live or even just her music videos - we come to terms with just how much she likes to express herself. However because Gaga is such the unique fashionista she is, she received a lot of hateful messages via twitter and in magazines about how people just don't agree with her choice of fashion. I won't be a sugar-coated fan and pretend everything Lady Gaga does is terrific and brilliant - because I can't say the thought of constructing meat-inspired Going GAGABy Georgia GouldingGeorgia GouldingGaga stands as a magnificent role model
