Here's the email in all its glory:
The News & Observer is proud to introduce its newest newspaper product - The N&O e-edition. The e-edition is a digital replica of the print newspaper, available on your computer 7 days a week. It's visually pleasing and reads like the real thing - perfect for the traveler, youngster or mover and shaker in your family.
New! Get the e-edition for only $5 a month! Sign up or learn more at newsobserver.com/e-edition.
Special features of the e-edition:
Searchable, savable, printable, emailable
Simple navigation for easy reading
Includes all seven community newspapers
Available every morning by 5:00 a.m.
Five dollars a month is very reasonable and that includes all of the community newspapers as well. No word on whether this ends regular online access or this is a different online product.
Now, if they can come up with a bargain for access to archives I'll be very happy.
