I knew that the content of the Indi (electronic) was going to suffer for its transcription to the e format, and it has. On the down side not enough photos, cartoons (actually none) crossword, on the plus side no adverts, no paper to cart around. All i need is there however, and in a format that works, i do like the section scanning part as it enables me to miss out those articles that i have no interest in. I do like that i can scan and pick what i read
I also like a lot that i can get my copy with out going to the shop and given that it is howling a gale at the moment and i am sitting in front of the fire with a large brew of caffeine, this is the best bit of all.
Where my real gripe is with price. Yes i save, but on the other hand they will want one months dosh up front (once you get past the free sub stage). Next its far to expensive for what you get, this is about £5 worth of content given that who ever set up the on-line version of the Indi, simply has to click a button to reproduce the Kindle editions (obviously after the set up template is done]. The £14 or so that i am being asked for is extortionate, but in the nicest possible way. Hint stop trying to replicate the Murdochnews and stick to your own set up and pricing structure. The Murdochnews isn't worth 5p let alone £15. Moreover everything the Kindle gives me is available FOC on the web where i spend my working day anyway.
I also like that i only have time to read the one paper, previously I used to spend £2 a day on 4 newspapers (and more at the weekend, which incidentally wont stop, the weekend bit i mean) scan and then onto the fire for kindling.
Will I continue? maybe, this is my second subscription to a newspaper and i am beginning to see the positive side of Kindles and the future. A few more photos and cartoons and i just might make the effort and continue?
