Economist Subscribers can now download the whole honking Economist to their PC, Ipod, Zune, whatever for free. ($8 for non-subscribers.)
That’s a huge benefit. The Economist is thick and weekly–nearly impossible to read through the whole thing cover to cover. Having the ability to listen to it now when I’m on the train or whatever, what a help.
I’m downloading for the first time now–130MB. Is taking it’s own sweet time. I’ll let you know how it goes.
