i've played with Mobi Pocket reader but there is no iphone version. it runs on windows, blackberry and WinMo. maybe another cell phone. Kindle also has an iphone app and you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books.

NY Public Library now lends out digital books. i read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on my blackberry a few months ago

Yeah but they need to get these reader software on laptops with bigger screens.

Being limited to smart phone screens is a tough experience.

I've been without the WSJ for a couple of years now. One highlight of my day in my working years was coming home and reading the WSJ while the DH cooked supper. Especially Friday's Personal section.

But it just isn't the same without the going to the work part first. Not that I want to go back to work or anything.

That sounds like me, but it was the DW cooking. Now I've figured it all out (index funds are kind of neat that way) and don't need the WSJ .

a few months ago one of the WSJ financial reporters was retiring from the paper and he was permitted to write whatever he wanted as a last article, which apparently is a tradition for departing reporters.

one of the things he said was that his impression after reporting on the financial sector for many years was that the simple strategy of buying and holding an index fund was the way to go.

About 2 months after I canceled my subscription, they send a special reactivate offer:

$70 off and $20 Amazon gift card if I activate in 48 hours. So about $60 net.

But easy enough to read any article through Google links.
