Briefs & Bookmarks: Maclean's, Backbone, Profit
Maclean's has a new 80-page iBook, 50 Mind-Blowing Discoveries that Will Change the World, available at the iBookstore. A print edition will hit newsstands June 17.

Business and tech lifestyle mag Backbone unveiled a redesign with its June/July 2013 edition. Pick up a copy to check out the new logo and look.

Toronto's Homes Magazine will launch a new feature on resort and vacation living in its June issue. The new section will provide recreation property options for retired, semi-retired, or otherwise mobile members of the mag's readership.

LabX Media Group and KMI Publishing and Events both ranked on Profit magazine's Profit500 list of Canada's fastest-growing companies. LabX, which publishes Lab Manager Magazine and The Scientist, ranked No. 266 overall and No. 31 in the Marketing Services and Media category. KMI, publisher of Canadian Real Estate Wealth and Canadian Mortgage Professional, ranked No. 324 (No. 38 in the category).

What does Cave magazine have to do with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's crack scandal? Michael Prempeh, who heads marketing and promo for the men's mag, worked on the mayor's staff and he seems to be the source of what The Toronto Star calls "the most candid statements yet" from behind the scenes at city hall.

Stay tuned to Masthead for MagNet 2013 recaps next week.
