I should note that 4 stars is the highest rating I can give any Kindle version of newspapers as long as they fail to include comics, local weather, local TV listings, etc. The Chronicle already seems to include more of its content on the Kindle than any other paper (especially the Sunday edition), but not enough for the elusive fifth star.
The main difference for me is the fact that it takes me much longer to read the Kindle version of the Chronicle. I have a tendency to scan through the articles and this isn't possible with the Kindle. Perhaps this is a good thing. Before the Kindle, the Chronicle was always a morning paper for me, but since I carry the Kindle with me, I find myself reading the newspaper at various times during the day.
My overall impression is very positive. The 2nd version of the Kindle provides a very convenient way of reading newspapers, magazines, and books, and I am already looking forward to the 3rd version which will hopefully offer a color screen.
It's great, I love it. So far, always available when I get up (6:30ish). I love the way I can page through just the way I would with a paper paper. Also, I'm not in whispernet range and was worried downloading from my computer would be a pain, but it's not! If you care about the comics, they're not there, but Jon Carroll is and that's what's important to me. Might have to get another Kindle though so my husband and I can read at the same time.
The difference I'm still getting used to is that there are no jumps. With the Kindle version you read one front page story all the way through and then the next one. You don't come to the secondary stories that relate until you get to the inner page. So, you'll be reading along and come to a later page and realize "oh yeah, these stories are related to the main article." Perhaps as they refine the Kindle version they'll have jump-to links at the end of the main story.
More important, though, is that the baseball box scores and standings are not included. I hope the folks who put the Kindle version together are reading that last sentence, because that would make it great. Therefore 4 stars instead of 5, but I'm liking it.

Paper is a typical liberal rag. Of course "liberal" is really a misnomer. The correct term is "elitist". Also most articles are just reprints from AP. Read morePublished 1 day ago by True Review

I love the Chronicle. My only complaint is I can't get the whole paper. I would like to receive the bridge and the funnies.Published 9 months ago by Karen Lee
I used to live in the SF Bay area, so it is interesting to occasionally read the Chronicle. It's how I found out that the new eastern part of the Oakland Bay Bridge was poorly... Read morePublished 11 months ago by dan
