Herald New Math



I see from Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal that the Herald is now finally available to be downloaded daily to your Kindle:
You can now receive The Miami Herald on Amazon's Kindle, which provides the best stories of the day via its elegant reader. While the fee that Amazon sets is high, $9.99 a month, the service is proving popular in many cities.
Why editorialize in your announcement that the fee of $9.99 a month is "high"?

Does Anders know how much a monthly subscription is to the dead-tree version of the Herald: $13.75 per month.

So a yearly Kindle Herald subscription is $119.88 while a dead-tree yearly subscription is $165.00.

Yep, I see what Anders means.

Well at least the Herald finances are in good hands.

    Good move, Herald. You partnered up with Amazon a full two years after the Kindle came out. Way to identify new trends.

    The result: the Miami Herald is dead last in the Kindle subscription rankings behind legendary metropolitan daily like the Orange County Register, The Oklahoman, and the Orlando Sentinel.

  8. The Q reads dozens of books a week. So what? It's what he does with the knowledge that counts.
