The News & Observer significantly upgraded the Kindle content in October, 2011, to include more national and international news, more letters to the editor, more editorial content, and also whole sections focused on neighborhoods: Cary, Midtown Raleigh, North Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Durham, Eastern Wake County, Garner-Clayton, Southwest Wake County, etc. Those neighborhood sections might only be published in the Kindle on Sunday, but it's still a major increase in the number of stories published on our favorite little reader.
The increased content spurred me to drop the Reuters newspaper subscription on the Kindle, which I think is excellent, and save 10 dollars per month. The 7-dollar N&O will provide what I need.
Still "missing" from the News and Observer are the weather forecast and anything printed in a table, such as "Sports-on-TV" listings, scores, standing, and statistics. Still, it is a terrific delivery vehicle for people on the go and people wanting Raleigh-Triangle-area content when not in the region.
