HASH(0x9d4a5b34) out of 5 stars Needs more content 9 Aug. 2008
By Brian - Published on
I signed up for the Houston Chronicle but cancelled within the first 14 days due to a general lack of content. To me it felt like we were getting less than half the paper. I wanted to read the tech columns etc. but during my brief subscription I did not see Silverman's column included in the Kindle version nor did I see national syndicated columns. I may give them a month or two and try again because I like the idea of having a newpaper on my Kindle.

Update: Feb 14, 2009, just bought another copy to see if there was any improvement. Sadly, no. Please Houston Chron give us full content...including pictures, comics, technology articles, etc.

HASH(0x9d4a5e40) out of 5 stars Disappointed 8 Nov. 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I am a new Kindle owner and so far love it. i am very disappointed in the Chron. it is missing a lot of the content I want. where are the columnists? no gardening or religion on Saturday? No Obits? When The Chron ups the content I will subscribe until then I will continue to read it conventially on paper or on line. very disappointing.

HASH(0x9d4a5b1c) out of 5 stars Very little covered. Not worth it! 3 Mar. 2009
By JohnnyG - Published on
I ordered the Houston Chronicle sample with my new Kindle and was very disappointed. It had only a very few articles from the paper. I know the paper is getting thinner but this is ridiculous.

I won't subscribe until they get more content!

HASH(0x9d4a5fb4) out of 5 stars No associated press content 29 Mar. 2009
By Melanti - Published on
There is a LOT missing from this paper.

It gives most of the local news and the sports, but lacks national and world news. As discussed in the other reviews, there are no syndicated columns, comics, or photos. However, it goes deeper than that. This version of the paper only includes content written directly by the Chron staff. Unfortunately, what that means is while local news is adequately covered, national and world news is not covered in any detail and Texas news is covered somewhat haphazardly.

I've had the paper for about a week now. On the typical day, there are anywhere between 1 and 3 articles each in the National and World news sections. And these generally do not cover the major events; they just cover what national events that the Chron staff has given their own spin to.

While good for local events, you'll need a separate paper for national and world news.

HASH(0x9d4a83a8) out of 5 stars This is an electronic daily service... Serves my purposes! 29 Dec. 2009
By Brett D. Cullum - Published on
Okay, first things first... this is not the entire HOUSTON CHRONICLE. It is edited down to the top stories found in sections described as front page, national, local, sports, and lifestyle. Columnists are missing a lot of the time, and there are no classifieds or coupons. Also missing from the Sunday edition would be any inserts such as the ZEST or the TV GUIDE.

What this is... a very nice looking KINDLE edition of the paper that you can read quickly. It costs about twenty cents a day, and gives you basically what you would want from an e-reader version of a major paper. You can gripe about missing content, but I personally do not want to wade through comics, obituaries, and movie listings. This is a down and dirty well-crafted summation of news in Houston and surrounding areas.

It serves my purpose well... I want to get in and out in twenty minutes with a cup of coffee in the morning. The Chronicle Kindle Version lets me do that, and I don't have to recycle.
