It’s been a year for hatin’ on News International, what with the whole phone-hacking business. But, give them their due, they’re still experimenting. This morning, for the first time in as long as I can remember, I’m reading a Christmas Day edition of a newspaper:
Sign of the Christmas Times

I always used to be mildly annoyed that we never got Christmas Day newspapers when I was growing up – and also, as I go a bit older, feel sorry for those poor hacks on the news pages of the Boxing Day editions…
The idea of a digital only issue of* The Sunday Times*, pushed out to tablets, is just genius. Kudos to the digital team there.
