. I'll stick with the old version for now. Offer not valid for mail delivery. Is my personal information safe? Why is the digital equivalent of turning the page a necessary part of this experience?

Our newspaper subscription website is monitored continuously by such renowned companies as McAfee and Verisign for security from any third parties, and the seals of these agencies are found in the footer on our website and the order page at checkout. With the masthead and content boxes at the top, all I see is the headline of the lead story.
If you like your news on the web, using a printed page interface to access that news is not very functional. I am glad to see that our paper of record is trying to come up with new revenue streams and new ways to deliver the news, but they missed the whole point of the web and how people consume news on this one. Simply enter your credit card information on our secure order form. Your credit card will be charged for the amount of the subscription. Outdated: Store is probably closed. Web sites are designed to let you quickly and easily browse down a page for the stories that interest you.
This is not an intuitive adjustment to all web users. It takes a big sheet of paper and reduces it down to a small screen. Lots of stories are visible on the current. All subscriptions include applicable sales tax. They haven't done a very good job of marketing this.
Anyway I was in a coffee house the other day and went outside and purchased a paper to read with my coffee. It looks exactly like the paper. I just look at the website for their news. In 2019, all subscriptions will include delivery on Thanksgiving Day. This front page shows me four stories. Revolutionary for 1996, but a major mis-step for 2009. This is an easy problem to solve technically.
This situation occurs mainly in very rural areas. And the More News blurbs on the lefthand side of the front page do not link to those stories, but open a window providing a link to those stories. Also, if your address is a Post Office Box number, the newspaper cannot be delivered to your address. Automatic Renewal Terms: Offer available only for non-subscribers within the home delivery area. The power of the web is its non-linear approach to content. So very disappointing to hear this. Nothing could be more convenient.
Any past due balance may be deducted prior to the subscription start. So I can only conclude that this an advertising play that allows sales reps to promote the print e-edition as a way to get online eyeballs on the print ads. There is no benefit to viewing the printed page on your computer if the print version continues to exist. However, there are cases where mail delivery might be available to your address. Your expected start date will be shown on the confirmation screen after you place an order. There are also legal notices and personal sections available.
For your convenience, your subscription will automatically renew after the initial term at the current rate unless you tell us to cancel. The e-edition is an exact photographic duplicate of the print edition, and is different from the charlotteobserver. This is a screen shot of what comes up when I launch the , but note that the two windows, table of contents and paper, were of equal size, and I reduced the size of the left window to show more of the paper. You can cancel at any time by contacting our customer service center at 1-800-522-4205. Of course, we strive to maintain these guidelines as much as possible, however, there are always extenuating circumstances, such as inclement weather, that might cause your newspaper delivery to be delayed. The lead time to start delivery on a new order varies by area.
I had no idea they had the e-edition either. These should be changed to go right to the story. In this new model, you must navigate around a page that has been laid out for print, where you are limited by the size of the paper. When reading a story on screen, it does not make sense to view it in skinny column. If you like the newspaper in its print edition, and many still do, this does not replicate that experience.
