5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent range of news with links to more detail August 17, 2008
Steven Bremner says it for me. Where else (on the Kindle) can you get such wide-ranging news and analysis, with a great selection of summaries of stories from major newspapers about currently big issues and with links to the full stories if we're interested in more.

What amazed me was that if the source site for a link is not overly graphics-laden, the link works and we can read the full story and then go 'back' to the collection of articles summarized. If a a page is too slow-loading or formatted in a way that the Kindle can't handle well, then I make an annotation to read the story online later when home, at the computer. If the title is "Next article" as can happen, I can also save it as a clipping to remind myself to get the longer story.

The content is varied, the writing smart, and this is lively reading on a daily basis. I've tried a few newspapers and blogs and am constantly online with my computer, and Slate is my first choice for reading each day -- even when I had the NY Times subscription for the 2 week trial.

One example: I wanted to know more about the Georgia/Russia situation, and Slate summed up articles from NY Times, WashPost, LA Times and MANY other sources while directing us to the actual articles. It's great to have the summaries and pointers to so many articles I wouldn't even know about. This is a sleeper, since I don't see it in the top 25. One day's trial was all I needed to know I'd keep this one. However, be aware that stories are kept for several days, so there is some redundancy there - but I like that too.

Slate also has plenty of original articles and you can choose from Sections, which include (besides News and Politics), Arts & Life, Business & Tech, Health and Science, Sports, and also Slate on NPR.

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited Content June 16, 2008
The Slate subscription seems very limited on it's content - especially when considering the $2.50 monthly fee - compared to the (free) Slate website. I know, I know, $2.50 isn't that much, but Slate is very content-rich, and to miss half the articles is to miss quite a lot (No "Fighting Words"? Are you kidding me?!). It is nice to have the articles delivered automatically, and it is a joy to read the articles on the Kindle. I am using the free trial period, and will update this review if anything changes, but it seems like the limited content makes this a dealbreaker for me at this time.
...
Edit: Today (Tuesday) I did get much of the content that was in yesterday's Slate, including Christopher Hitchens' "Fighting Words". Hmmm...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best value on Kindle for news March 2, 2008
I have been "sampling" all the newspapers, magazines, and blogs since I got my Kindle in early December and Slate is the best value. The "daily papers" by Daniel Pollit is an excellent compendium of the major dailies. The political commentary is in-depth and insightful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice portable version of the site January 13, 2008
By S.
Slate works pretty well on the Kindle. You get a table of contents for each day, and then there's a "skip to next article" at the top of each article as well. Some articles aren't as useful, as link-heavy stuff doesn't work well, but things like the summaries of key headlines in the nation's newspapers are a good way to get a quick handle on things when you're on the go.

I love Slate! My favorite thing in it is the news digest for each day. Unfortunately, what I really like is to be able to read that BEFORE I go off and tackle the day's newspapers -- not possible when, as another reviewer pointed out, Slate doesn't get delivered to my Kindle until 9AM. Since all the new content for each day is posted on the website well before then, I'm not sure why this is. Someone needs to talk to someone and get it delivered around 7 daily, when Daniel Politi finishes writing his news digest.

When I do get to read it, there's the news digest, informative and logical, well-written political articles, and always something fun to read as well. They just need to start delivering it earlier so I can read it on the subway!

5 stars for content
1 star for organization...
(Addition, it is meant to be a daily, but for the last 2 days, September 29 & 30, there have been no issues?)

I really enjoy the material; but especially with recent versions of kindle, it is impossible, literally, to find your place in long or serial articles.
THERE ARE NO SECTIONS, BOOKMARKS OR LOCATION POINTS.
Today I was trying to pickup on the latest section of an 8000 word article on airports, on the website this is 5 articles, currently it includes 4,[...]: but
on the kindle, it is just one huge article with no sections or location points (the page concepts on the kindle). I seem to remember the earlier version of the Kindle there were locations,
now there are none. (I don't know if this is a hardware or software point.) It is ridiculous that the articles are not broken into sections. This of course means that if you read one section
on one day, you cannot find your place except by reading it again...or at least flipping through page by page, without page / location points..

This means that any section articles, their clubs on tv shows for example, are literally impossible to read on the paid subscription mode on kindle, but
perfectly organized on the free version on the web...what gives?

It is really depressing that good material is ruined by appalling structure issues. I don't know if it is the fault of slate or amazon or both, but someone should be responsible to
format the material and software so that the paid magazines are readable.
