This review is from: Slate Daily Paid No-Ads Edition (Kindle Edition)
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...

I must agree with "Desert Rat" - Slate is an excellent magazine with a wide ranging scope of articles - however, the limited content available on the Kindle is disappointing - esp when you consider that Slate's Website and the iPAD app are available to readers at no charge.
