How does PaperWhite download magazines. I only see Kindle Fire. Want to download Time, New Yorker, and Vanity Fair... don't see a site where it shows what Paperwhite can download.

They would look dreadful on a 6" black and white screen, so the publishers don't allow it.

Why?
This publication is not available for some devices. The publisher may have opted out of making it available on certain devices, or the reading experience may not yet be optimized for this publication on those devices.

I also imagine that selling ad space to businesses would be difficult since the paperwhite is not a color device nor would images look the same.

most magazines require an app, which the Paperwhite doesn't support.

yeah - the reading experience would not be what you would want.... or the publishers.

I don't have a PaperWhite, but this version will load on my e-ink devices. It's true many picture-heavy mags have migrated to apps and abandoned their 'newsstand' versions.

ETA: Here's The New Yorker:
The New Yorker

Again, click on 'Newsstand' but don't look under the "Interactive magazines" banner, those are for tablets.
