Kobo Newspapers

I downloaded The Globe & Mail on Saturday using Calibre and I have to say I'm pretty disappointed at how it displays on my Kobo. My friends Kindle has a much more intuitive setup. The paper is displayed by sections, Sports, Business, Enetertainment etc. and then has sub categories for each of those that you can select. Kobo seems to simply display a long list of articles in a somewhat random order. When you choose 'top stories' you with a list of the articles but I don't seem to be able to select them in any way. Does anyone know if there is a way to change how the Kobo formats newpapers?

I don't think this has to do with the Kobo specifically, this likely has to do with what Calibre is doing with the newspaper. I saw on the Kobo software that there are newspapers "coming soon" so maybe they will be formatted differently when they come directly from Kobo

My friend gets his newspapers for his Kindle from Calibre and they display totally different. I imagine Kobo will be charging for their newspaper service while Calibre does it for free.

I also read that Newspapers are coming officially to the Kobo eReader by end of May.
It is on their website somewhere...

I also think it's Calibre's fault rather than the Kobo

KOBO will read what's there. I haven't yet tried it but was reading about it in the Calibre! manual today.

I'm going over there later to ask for KOBO support.
Also, how many users on this forum must there be for KOBO to have it's own forum instead of a sub in the MISC readers. I know, I know, it hasn't even been a week.
