Online Print Newspapers

PressDisplay is an interesting concept. They have about 200 print newspapers on their site ready to be read, every single day. Each newspaper is scanned and made available with full zoom & scroll abilities ala Google Maps. Among other features:

  • Magnifying lens
  • Bookmarks
  • Full text search
  • Archival access

Requires free registration to read inside pages but I guess it’s worth it. The site is nicely done and it’s not hard at all to figure out how to use it, at least I was able to. I see myself returning to it often, even if at times it’s only for the fun of it. At least it doesn’t have the portalish-junk like the online-versions of these newspapers and is fast enough too.
