Do you guys like it??

I do NOT. I'm all for saving money and such, but this new digital format is terrible for me. Maybe if you have a good high-speed internet, but mine isn't terrible! I do have a premium DSL- good enough that we can stream movies (sometimes TWO at a time on different devices)....so I know my internet is not THAT bad! It surprisingly took awhile to load up. The page turning was slow (I'd hear it about 2 seconds before it actually turned). The text is hard to read, and yes, you can zoom (which was a pain!), but then it gets so big you see just 1-2 paragraphs/half a picture, and have to fiddle with the zoom setting- which was slow and choppy. Searching was SLOW! I like the links within the pages, but whatever server they have this thing on is just making me crazy. :D

I guess I get annoyed when companies assume that everyone has a smartphone or device and has high speed connections.

I prefer the OLD Digital method - downloading and viewing the PDF. This does seem to have an option to download an "offline" version, but it's a zip file. (WHAT?! Why?)

Sorry...just seems a step backwards to me, or at the very least, alienates alot of people with rural services. :(

Side note though: I enjoyed the CONTENT of the news. Loved the Amazing Race idea, and I love the charm necklace. Very cute!

I'm on my desktop and it downloaded right away and was fine... I'm not sure how it would be on my 13" mac though. I wouldn't want the print any smaller.. but I have a decent size screen on the desktop.

I agree Bobbi...there is no reason they can't make that available as a pdf version also. I HATE HATE HATE reading things in that format. Just sent an email!
