Telegraph Lifestyle to go 100% Digital

Dan Hickey, the Utahn Head of Lifesytle at the Telegraph, who previously ran a walking magazine, has told hacks at the bruised paper that they are planning to take all lifestyle content “100 percent digital”, including magazines and supplements. Needless to say this has gone down like a (designer) mug of cold sick.


  1. 1

    I am just going for a nap after lunch.

    Please keep quiet.

  2. 2
    Mitch says:

    The last thing I want to do is read magazines on my phone. Why?

  3. 3
    Market research says:

    What is “siding” one’s shopping?


  4. 4

    Vote UKIP :-D

  5. 5
    Bracli Bros says:

    That should cut the circulation down nicely.

  6. 6
    Web Guru says:

    Time to change the name. Nobody sends telegraphs these days and an online newspaper doesn’t appear once a day.

    I’d call it “Hourly i-Zine #2.0″

  7. 7
    Ditch the mitch says:

    100% digital nay be a phone for you, but for many it is a full HD screen.

  8. 8
    Izal Fetishist says:

    Bloody hell, i’m going to have to buy bog paper now – you can’t wipe your bum with an ipad.

  9. 9
    Market research says:

    He’s changed the text. It read she was siding her shopping before.

  10. 10
    LibDem perv and pedo party says:

    Crossed the panty line into the furry region.

  11. 11
    The Jungle Telegraph announced a Telegram service says:

    You are confusing telegram and telegraph.

  12. 12
    Mitch says:


  13. 13
    The Growler says:

    Tell us Geedes, when is the Sun going totally digital or for that matter the Times

  14. 14
    Schumacher says:


  15. 15
    Lurch to the Left says:

    Another market for Labour to regulate

  16. 16
    The Growler says:

    Your showing your age now

  18. 18
    Bert says:

    Too bad. I’m installing a new close-boarded fence and plan to spend the afternoon whacking nails into featherboards. After that: out comes the fucking strimmer!

  19. 19
    Bert says:

    There’s an app for that.

  20. 20
    Bert says:

    When is o’rder-o’rder going totally digital, that’s what I want to know.

  21. 21
    Ellie-Mae (9) says:


  22. 22
    The Growler says:

    Cocky liked his bit of fluff, trouble is they didn’t seem over awed with Cocky

  23. 23
    Anne Droyed says:

    Is it called CrAPP?

  24. 24
    Skid Marx says:

    OK I’ll call your Izal and up the stake to Bronco

  25. 25
    Stick em all up your arse says:

    More than half a newspaper and all its supplements stuffed with women’s gossip, shit and shoes.
    Oooh look at Kim Kardashians arse hasn’t it got bigger since we saw it yesterday.
    Great an article written by a Journo on maternity leave telling us about her poxy kids and ‘useless’ husband Zzzzzzz.

  26. 26
    jgm2 says:

    More likely to have been killed by one of her own family for talking to white boys or showing a bit of ankle or nape of the neck.

  27. 27
    Lord Trumpington says:

    What a plonker. Half these British geehaddies are losers who flunked school and can’t get a job. They seek refuge in religion because they’ve failed in life.

  28. 28

    Geedo is four quarters digital and that doesn’t seem to put you off your prolific dross.

  29. 29
    Apthorpe says:

    Why bother at all with this tosh, digital or print? Guido looking for new boss?

  30. 30
    Trimperley says:

    I only buy the weekend Telegraphs for Jeff Howell and Honest John. If their columns are no longer printed I won’t be buying.

  31. 31
    Apthorpe says:

    I hope Dave will ensure they are pursued with the full vigour of the law.

  32. 32
    Norma Stitz says:

    Izal Medicated was horrendous stuff, shite skidded around on it like teflon.

  33. 33
    The Growler says:

    Geedes a few years ago, took the blog private, but for some reason he went public, maybe having to sign in with your email addy.

  34. 34
    jgm2 says:

    Aye. ‘Hardened fighters’ my arse.

    Posing with AK47s is all they’re good for.

    They’ll be good for fuck all except executing unarmed men, women and children.

  35. 35
    Vlad the Loudhailer says:

    Shouldn’t she be at a food bank!

  36. 36
    Mitch says:

    Ha – that’s a bit rich coming from a spastic like you!!

  37. 37
    New Cross Fire 1981 says:

    But we’ll try and pin it on hon-keys first, like we always do.

  38. 38
    Dhimmi Dave says:

    Ha ha ha ha ha…..

    Listen, you ghastly English oiks have got to do more to integrate.

  39. 39
    Shitty end of the stick says:

    The old ways are the best.

  40. 40
    Will it have cunt shots of Bryony? says:

    Hold on to my boots boys, I’m going in.

  41. 41
    Trashy says:

    Her name is really Precious Umbongo.

  42. 42
    Ambition says:

    fap, nap and crap.

  43. 43
    Fat slag says:

    Bryony is obese. Yecch.

  44. 44
    Crumbling dock leaf says:

    Not so sure.

  45. 45
    Fred the pensioner says:

    I fear all this extreme excitement is now beginning to have an effect on my pacemaker.

  46. 46
    Fred the pensioner says:

    He seems just the chap to send into exile in Outer Mongolia – especially as he is so fond of Russky bints. Can someone have a word with Vlad to see what can be arranged?

  47. 47
    Fred the pensioner says:

    Always have a dock leaf or two handy if you accidentally defecate into some nettles…

    Every 5 year old I ever met knew that.

  48. 48
    Fred the pensioner says:

    If he reverts to that his readership will reduce to something under 100 – and I’ll lead the way out.

  49. 49
    Fred the pensioner says:

    So we had better start demanding that Dave repeals Bliar’s gun laws and let’s us arm ourselves again while there is still time.

  50. 50
    Fred the pensioner says:

    *lets – not what my keyboard decided…

  51. 51

    Thank you for that. Did not hear a thing! :-)

  52. 52

    Oh! Hello!

    Come to help me out again, have you?

  53. 53
    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    Have they got rid of that useless bint yet?

  54. 54
    Vlad the Impaler says:

    I am on the case.

  55. 55
    Mitch says:

    You’re replying to yourself – I presume that’s intentional? You make my point for me very well..

  56. 56
    It's a bummer says:

    “They seek refuge in religion because they’ve failed in life.”
    Doesn’t every religious do that?

  57. 57
    Englishman says:

    I’ve been stripping in the garden. Nitromors doesn’t seem as strong as it used to be though. EU regulation no doubt.

  58. 58
    suet pudding says:

    Play the comb and paper with it tho. try that with andrex.

  59. 59
    Bubba Gump Shrimp says:

    That’s precisely the reason why. Nitromors is now shit. EU VOC Regulations have bowdlerized it. Shame. It were the king of paint stripping (accompanied by Dvorak’s Symphony No 9 arranged for brass)…

  60. 60
    Steve P says:

    What does “entirely digital MEAN please?

    Surely production is already?

    And they will need it on paper to sell?

  61. 61
    Steve says:

    Maybe the Telegraph could get round to making sure its iPad version actually downloads, today is the 2nd day it will not work on the iPad.

  62. 62

    The last good use of the papers was at chip shops but even they have moved on

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
