>> Creem Rises: An iconic rock magazine with Detroit roots that ceased regular print publication more than 20 years ago is planning a comeback. The team behind Creem said it's restarting in September and envision a quarterly publication as part of a broader music network that includes mobile apps and streaming music videos -- all with the aim of attracting old and new readers. Editorial offices will be in Los Angeles.

>> What He Really Wants: Hearst is entering new territory in the digital realm with Cosmo For Guys, exclusively on the iPad. Kate White, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, is also at the helm of the new app, and is confident she has a unique offering with Cosmo For Guys (dubbed CFG). Aimed at the male demographic of 25 and up, White says, "It's advice from women for guys, straight from the source. Men circulate the same myths about women to one another; this is women telling guys what they really want."
