At last you can buy a newspaper in America

It finally happened. The Guardian began offering the complete newspaper in a digital edition. You can go to their web site to find out more and see an example. It has the complete content of The Guardian and The Observer, browsable with any normal web browser.

The interface is really slick—there’s a thumbnail of the page, and you can click on parts which catch your eye to see the appropriate story. If you want to clip and file a story for reference, a single click downloads a PDF version with all the images and formatting, or you can click for a document to load into a word processor for whatever academic purposes.

The killer feature, however, is that the quality of the newspaper beats the hell out of the New York Times, let alone lesser US papers.

There’s a discount offer if you sign up in the next day or two.
