Maybe eventually but not yet.
I still don't have the habit of taking my laptop to the dentist to ready my news and opinion while on the waiting room.
There are also some other rooms in my house where I feel more comfortable with a printed magazine than with a laptop.
So as of right now and for me, sometimes the internet is more convenient (I read my news there every day) but sometimes the magazines are more convenient (I subscribe to one weekly and two monthly magazines).
I prefer magazines for the opinion pieces but I think that regarding the authoritativeness of the sources, the internet is already "there".
