The publishers of the Cleveland Plain Dealer apparently think that digital readers don't want to read the whole paper. In this light, they have decided to pick and choose which artilces digital subscribers get to see. Last week, there was ONE (1)!!! article on the front page? Really? The physical paper had four! On another day the arts section had only three articles. The physical paper had seven. Ms. Cabot's articles are sometimes missing from the sports pages. The things they do include, (like their lame PDQ section), is useless since it is mostly graphs--and the PD does not digitize graphs at all. Imagine how irritating it is to read a list of questions asked on current issues with no list of answers or demographics included. As for pictures, you're lucky to get one per issue. This is NOT a digital newspaper that Cleveland can be proud of.

Update July 2012: The people at the PD have not improved their digital edition. Careless errors abound. Frequently you will find articles repeated--whole sections of the newspaper presented twice. You'll only see a specific location listed once, but when you get to the end of the section, the articles all repeat. They have added more photos, but they are frequently attached to the wrong articles. Example: on July 8 the first article in the business section dealt with wind power, but the accompanying photo was of a Cleveland Indians player. Another thing that has begun to happen with regularity is whole articles being located in the wrong section. (Sunday's edition included the NYTimes Best Seller list, but put it in the Sports Section.) ...And they still insist on including the PDQ section without any graphics. Please explain why we would want to see all the possible punch lines for their weekly cartoon when we don't get to see the cartoon. Still a second class attempt.

Finally! I was so glad to see that The Plain Dealer finally made the list of newspapers available for Kindle. Being a life-long Clevelander, I'm used to being left for last or left out completely. I perused the Kindle version this morning and found all sections accounted for. There aren't really any photos to speak of, but that's the world we live in these days. I subscribe to several Kindle magazines and the photos are sparse if at all.

It would be nice if the sections were divided into folders. I know we're only on Kindle version 2.3. Let's hope folders are next; both for organizing our books and within magazines and newspapers. For now, this will be fine.

I'm also glad to be part of the solution, folders or not. Buying a newspaper every day not only creates a lot of trash (let's face it, recyclers are the minority), but it kills a lot of trees. Kindle helps reduce the need for DTB's (dead tree book) and the need to fill up our world with trash.

My one beef? The price could be better. In truth, it costs them little to nothing to send a digital file via Whispernet, yet it cuts their costs substantially versus printing and delivering the physical newspaper. Just saying.

Welcome to the fold, Plain Dealer. Last or not, I'm happy to see you made the cut (pun not intended).

Now that the Plain Dealer has announced that it only have home delivery three days a week, the question is - Is this a full replacement for the print copy? Looking at the Friday April 5, 2013 edition, this is what I found to be present, and to be missing.

What's there:
- The full text of most articles from Plain Dealer staff as well as syndicated articles (except as noted below - Basically, any article that is printed in normal size font in the paper was accounted for)
-- The Front Page
-- National & World
-- Editorials
-- Metro
-- Business (note the edit below)
-- Sports
-- Arts & Life
-- Friday
- Notable Local Deaths
- Some pictures, for example:
-- "Alabama lawmakers vote to pardon 'Scottsboro Boys'" has its picture
- Dear Abby in Diversions section

What's missing:
- Most photos are missing - for example:
-- The "The Plain Dealer to remain a daily" article on the front page (above the fold) is missing the A1 pictures and an A6 picture of the news room staff.
-- The "Habitat shifts from building to rehabbing housing in city" (article on the front page (above the fold) is missing a front page picture and an A4 picture.
-- "Roger Ebert, acclaimed movie critic, dies at 70" article is missing both an A1 and A2 picture.
- Most (maybe all??) tables are missing - for example:
-- The "Ohio ACLU calls for end to prison for debtors" article - the "Case Study" table on page A4
-- U.S.

When I was hospitalized for a week during basketball playoff's I downladed the PD to my Kindle hoping to read a bunch of sports news. Never mind! Nothing has changed since 2011 and 2013 when previous reviewers wrote about the lack of articles and incomplete paper. I didn't pay much and didn't get much. What's the point in making bits and pieces of a paper available but not the entire edition? Very disappointing.
