Jim Bob

Am I the only person having a problem with this trick described in the August issue of Genii? I can think of ways to correct what I think is a mistake in the explanation, but they are not very elegant. Am I just reading this wrong, or does Doug do it another way? (At least the way I am reading it, t...

Re: iGenii problem

I'm not sure if Margaret did anything or not, but I opened the app and got the same "you are logged in but you have no active subscription" message. I tried deleting the app and signing in again and now it appears to be working once more.

Re: iGenii problem

Dear Richard, Thanks for the reply. It's hard for me to adjust the settings because it says my subscription is not active; I am logged in. I suspect that may be a discrepancy between the iPad vendor's database and Genii's since my subscription is supposed to end with an August issue -- just '15, not...

Re: iGenii problem

First, the 75 years of back issues accessible online are an amazing accomplishment and incredible value. So, hats off in general. As the company who handles Genii digital is supposedly reading these threads, I will weigh in. As an iOS 7 iPad Air user, I find the app pretty wonky and fiddly. When I o...

Re: New Genii Website Up and New Digital July Edition Live

My experience so far: On my iPad 2 : Works okay except that there is no audio to accompany the videos and no audio on the audio links either. Someone else reported this problem on another board. Also if I try to flip pages using the right hand arrow on a page shortly after opening an issue, the who...

Re: New Genii Website Up and New Digital July Edition Live

No, the browser based system is for your desktop and laptop computers. Apple was supposed to have put our app up yesterday, but for some reason it's not there yet.

Re: MAGIC magazine & iPad - no longer ?

Why are people asking here? Well, because Magic is inexplicably lame on social media -- or any kind of communication with its readers, outside of the print edition. People asked here and got an answer. Without getting into a Genii vs. Magic discussion (although I will say I only subscribe to one), I...

Re: Michael Ammar Live Lecture for just $1

I believe these are Murphy's Magic lectures, and that they are offered to all dealers able to sell streaming product. Just my guess here, but these seem like a clear response to the Penguin lectures. Penguin has been doing their live lectures for two years, and I wouldn't be surprised if other shops...

Re: "Tim's Vermeer" (Not Magic, but ...)

It's a good doc -- Teller plays it fairly straight in terms of documenting Tim Jenison's quest to replicate a Vermeer and prove the possibility of an optical method in his painting. There's not really any of the usual P&T anarchic humor, but none is needed. The story itself is fascinating, and b...

I tried restarting my iPad Air, which has plenty of free memory, to no avail. Deleted the app -- and all the downloaded magazines -- and reinstalled, which seems to have done the trick.

Re: November 2013 issue of Genii

Mine arrived today in NYC. Looks like a great issue. Also was happy to see Josh Jay's byline on the cover story and sad not to find Max's column. I hope he decides to continue it. Haven't had time to read much in the issue, but the Angelo Carbone trick looks amazing.

Quick Dai Vernon question

I've read before where Dai Vernon has been celebrated as one of the best amateur magicians of all time because, of course, he innovated so much while not making a living doing magic. Is the latter part actually true? I'll confess to knowing his work more than his biography. I'm asking because I'm wr...

Re: Real Secrets - The Market Decides

Re: T-Change by Jeff Prace

It was only a $5 impulse buy, but I wish I had read your review before buying. IMO, your fifth paragraph is a salient omission. Also, Joel Givens has something similar in "Session," albeit without the Marlo aspect.
