Q: How is this better than reading newspaper and magazine websites?
A: Think about your favourite newspaper or magazine. The presentation of the content is carefully organized for you in ways that make the reading experience pleasurable and fulfilling. It's presented so you can scan your items of interest, since you don't know in advance everything you want to see. Signposts that readers use include: size of headlines, subheadlines and consistent location of types of content. ePaper publications provide the same signposts and user comfort as their printed counterparts, with additional interactive features such as hotlinks and embedded graphics.
