The Hindu newspaper goes digital from today

you can access it from here but you need to register first but its pretty easy epaper.thehindu.com. When you register they ask you how you want to get the stories. in text or PDF or images. I choose images. when I login i get the exact paper replica of the newspaper and on the left you can see small red rectangles which have numbers on them, they are the individual papers when you click on the number you will be taken to that particular paper. And they even have a paper like animation that looks like you are flipping paper when you click on the new page.

when i move my mouse over a link little detail about the story pops up.  When i click on a story a new window pops up with the whole story which is quite readable but since I choose images i get an image. you can choose text or other forms.

This work on the images too. When i click on images they too pop up in a new window a little bigger.

I think all this is a good idea. They have a 3 month option when you register, i am guessing after that they will make pay per view. The paper will be put online at 6:00 am everyday. It's an interesting idea, we will have to wait and see how it goes. You can still get the badly done Hindu at www.thehindu.com
