NEW YORK: Newsweek, one of the magazine industry's most venerable titles, will unveil a new stage for the latest products and services when it debuts Tip Sheet, a three- to five-page section, in the May 13 issue.Tip Sheet - "a newsletter for smart consumers,
according to section editor Kathleen Deveny - has been created to replace the Focus page, which was dedicated to one of four themes: healthcare, travel, technology, and personal finance. The revised offering will run a mix of those subjects, as well other topics.
"For example, we'll write about food and wine,
said Deveny. "We might review a fancy corkscrew - anything, really - that people would actually want. But we're not interested in products that won't be available until two years from now, or a science breakthrough that doesn't have a clear implication for readers."
