Newsweek will go all digital in 2013. The last issue of the print version will be the December 31 issue. Newsweek published a print version for 80 years. An image of Newsweek on the iPad is pictured above.

Tina Brown calls the decision bittersweet. She says, "Bittersweet, I say. Bitter, because I'd be lying if I didn't confess to a bruised heart. I love print: always have, always will do. Sweet, because we are rising spiritedly to a challenge, not wringing our hands in impotent despair over the way modern life-and modern reading habits-have rendered our print edition unviable."

The AP reports that job cuts are expected as Newsweek goes all digital. Take a look:
