I enjoy the Wall Street Journal, but being a daily publication, I wanted more up-to-date news breaks. The NY Times Blog solves the issue.

It pumps news stories to the Kindle every 3-4 hours, and the stories appear to be comprehensive, well-written, each about 1000 words long, and there are approximately 8-12 headlines active at a time. So, it is not the NY Times newspaper itself regarding content amount, but getting thousands of words of up to date info effortlessly every few hours, 24/7, is well worth the $1.99 monthly. The stories are more timely than even the NY Times subscription newspaper.

I have used the experimental web feature of the Kindle to secure news stories, and while that works also, it is more cumbersome, slower, takes more clicks of the wheel, and it not a neat and tidy as having active headlines 24/7 "pushed" to the device.

I did the trial subscription to Reuters headlines and found it far inferior to the NY Times Headlines for content, photos, navigability, and writing quality. Try both the Times and the Reuters and the difference will stun you.

The NY Times blog even has photos for almost every article that are good quality, and is easy to navigate and read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars best blog - well-written carefully-selected content March 23, 2008
this blog is the most valuable in the kindle format that i have tried. discrimination is exercised in selecting the content - articles qualify as "latest news" & quantity of total articles listed is kept to a manageable amount. the articles-listing titles actually give you a good idea of the subject. each article is well-written & the right length for the substance. some include pictures.

many of the other blogs i tried are just a heap of varying-quality unhelpfully-titled material dumped onto your kindle that you have to time-consumingly pick through for any satisfaction.

i can't wait to see what they do when there is a firestorm of fresh news - such as will happen at the time of the dem/rep conventions, election day or say when CA has our expected uber-earthquake (assuming i manage to put my kindle & desiccants in a ziploc bag with a solar-powered charger in time).

5.0 out of 5 stars I can see why this is a big seller on the Kindle April 30, 2008
A great addition to the Kindle; I can't imagine anyone cancelling "New York Times Latest News" after giving it a try. Stories are varied, in depth, well written, and update several times a day, allowing subscribers to track the latest developments in the big news stories during any given period. The presentation of the articles on the Kindle is clean, organized, and pleasing to the eye; and most articles contain a photograph, which look just fine on the Kindle, too. New articles arrive, old ones drop off, no muss, no fuss. If I'm constantly using this blog now (and I am), I can't imagine how helpful this subscription will be this summer during trips to the shore and mountains when I'll be away from televisions and computers. With all the benefits and the economical price, "New York Times Latest News" was an easy buying decision for me, and you'll likely find it to be so, too.

Note: Amazon frequently updates the presentation and functionality of Kindle blogs and periodicals, so as this review gets older, it may no longer accurately describe the current version of this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York Times - Latest News April 24, 2008
I am still in the trial period for this - but it is great (I don't know how anyone would have time for more of the NYTimes than this). The stories are in-depth, it is not a headline news product . . . and I feel it has put me in closer touch with the issues around current events. I will continue to subscribe - I am much more likely to read it on the Kindle than I am through my browser.

Also, it refreshes and deletes itself, i.e. it requires no management. I love that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value (+ sync issue resolution) April 23, 2010
By Deb H
As others have indicated, this feed features a great deal of quality content at a fair price.

It does seem to have problems re-syncing after my wireless has gone offline for a period. To get it started again, restart the Kindle (Home > Menu > Settings > Menu, select "Restart.").

3.0 out of 5 stars A little hard to navigate October 23, 2009
The articles are (of course) high-quality; but the blog articles seem to be downloaded out-of-order compared to how they appear in the "articles list". So, when three new articles arrive, I need to fish through the entire articles list to figure out which are the new ones (no indication, I just have to remember what I've read; and often the new articles are closely related to ones I've already read).

On the other hand, it's vastly cheaper than subscribing to the regular New York Times, and maybe by the time you read this, they'll have worked out the ordering issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Virginia, there's all the news that's fit to print January 20, 2008
Other reviewers suggested that articles that appear in the print and on-line versions of the New York Times are missing in the Kindle version. If they are, I don't know about it.

I just read my first Kindle version of the Sunday Times: all the sections of the paper and on-line versions were there. The navigation of this version is different, however. The Front Page section does not just include the articles on the first page of the newspaper; it includes the articles on the front pages of all the major sections. To cite two examples, if you scroll down the Front Page section of the Kindle Times you will find the articles featured on the cover of the Magazine section and the first page of the Week in Review. You will NOT find them in the respective Kindle Magazine Section or Week-in Review section.

A few other reviews gave me the impression that the articles in the Kindle version were "Readers' Digest" abridged versions of Times news stories and opinions. Thank goodness, this is not the case. I compared a Kindle article with the on-line version, and they were identical. I can't imagine Maureen Dowd or Frank Rich taking kindly to anyone condensing their work.

What's in it?
All of the Kindle Blogs (not just this one) occassionally stop updating. When that happens, just restart your Kindle by going to Settings, then selecting restart from the menu.
