    Am I d_bing this?


    So people who work there can't read the actual paper at the paper? Am I reading that right?

    How long before it is that way for actual readers?

    The Old Hacks will just print it out and ruin the office supply budget. :D

    I think The (not Newark anymore) Star-Ledger has had something similar for years.

    It's essentially searchable PDFs of the paper on a website, so it looks just like the paper you'd get in your driveway. There is a separate fee for current subscribers, and I believe it's also possible to subscribe to the electronic edition alone.

    I don't know whether the paper is still available in the office or not.

    It's gonna be a pain to lug their computer terminals to the copy machine, though. Hope they have flat screens.

    The Idaho State Journal (Pocatello) also uses something very similar, but through Olive Software.

    E-editions are pretty damn good, IMHO. I still would rather read the print product and always will when given the chance, but it's especially a good choice if it's an out of town paper.

    No, this won't work. Would you rather read this complicated thing or a well-organized web site?

    The suits failed us again.

    I actually like the E-Editions. Easy to navigate.

    I agree. Maybe I am trained that way, but I think they are organized a lot better than most web sites.
