Have you compared the screen view to the Calibre converted version?

Thanks for the images. Is the Sony version a "duplicate" of the p version or of something else? That is, if I went out and bought today's LA Times at the newsstand and compared it to the Sony e version, would the articles be identical and would all the articles that appear in the p version appear in the e version?

I believe so.. i mean that is the purpose of all of this, make the electronic version be identical to the paper version.. it would be nicer though if they can do updates as the day progress, right!

I just downloaded my first issue onto my 505. I am quite happy with it so far. I have used Calibre for years now and have been using PressDisplay.com for the full paper on my MacbookPro and Blackberry as well.

This is a nice mix of the two. More detailed and 'newspaper' feeling that Calibre but smaller and easier to use than the PressReader stuff.

But $15 a month? Not sure about that. I'm more likely to buy issues .75 a piece when I want to take the paper with me.
