iTunes now allows users to subscribe to PDFs as well as podcasts, Steve Rubel reports on his blog. Current offerings are WikiNews Print Edition and a pdf from Make Magazine. Steve says:

It’s conceivable that Apple could turn iTunes into a dedicated RSS reader that operates like Safari and become a clearing house for all subscription-based content. In addition, wireless is on the way according to this patent filing. Taking this a step further, it’s also highly possible that if iTunes enhances its DRM to include other enclosures it will move into e-books and or e-magazines.
