Virtual Sun

The Ottawa Sun's presses breakdown today is providing a free look at the tabloid's new Virtual Paper.

It is convenient and complete, but it is a generational thing. The portability of print media still trumps sitting at a computer screen to read a newspaper.

Virtual papers are an asset for shut-ins, for people in areas where home delivery is not an option, for those winter days when you just don't want to leave the house for the papers etc.

No doubt it is the future, but generations raised on print newspapers should not be denied the affordable, daily ritual of reading them whenever and wherever the mood strikes.

In the loo, while eating lunch in the car, during work breaks, on trains, planes, subways and buses without a laptop or other computerized devices in tow.

Print is for us, but our thanks to the Ottawa Sun for the free peek.
