A "New Day" For Newspapers! (Or - The Dawn Of A New Era)
After deciding to give the debut edition of the first new newspaper for some years a miss on Monday I ended up buying one on Tuesday, yesterday, and today (well - I did have to form a proper opinion on it which was not influenced by hype).

The first thing I should say is that I think the trial price of 25 pence should be the full price.  I would not be prepared to pay 50 pence for a newspaper - no matter how good it is.

I was surprisingly impressed by the layout and content of the newspaper.  It has more of a magazine/blog feel to it than your average newspaper.  And I didn't have to peer at the print because the print was larger than your average newspaper - something I feel the rest of the newspapers can learn from.

As for the content - it almost read like a feed from Social Media.  What I mean is that the articles did not contain any discernable bias but the people who wrote them had a good understanding of the subject matter.

Whilst I am unlikely to buy it when it goes to fuul price (unless it has something I really want to read in it) - I am impressed with it so far.  All that is missing is the website which I really feel would make more use of the content.
