Default News & Observer e-edition

Well I canceled my N&O subscription a while back but started buying just the Sunday out of a machine. Anyway I
was in a coffee house the other day and went outside and purchased a paper to read with my coffee. Inside was a card with a code advertising 10 weeks of home delivery for $20. I decided to do it. That's like $2 a week and I'm paying that for the Sunday alone.

Anyway to my point ..... with a subscription you also get on-line access to their e-edition ..... it's really pretty good. It looks exactly like the paper. It seems to be very user friendly with options to configure to your liking and a easy zoom to read finer print if need be. I hated the plain old N&O website newspaper. I think you can order just the e-edition for $5 a month.

You can see a sample here : NewsObserver.com | e-edition

Interesting. Here's to it being slighlty more successful than the New York Newsday web subscription service. They spent $4 MILLION on their website relaunch and design and after a few months only had 35 subscribers. Yup, that's right ..... only 35.

Well I would think Long Island is a very competitive newspaper market to start with and $260 a year to boot spells disaster. The N&O is the only show in town and you're talking $60 a year compared to $260 a year.

And also 75% of Long Islanders have free access to it by being either print subscribers to Newsday or subscribers to the family's cable company.

I didn't realize I had access to an N&O e-edition with my subscription. Nice to know - thanks!
