RIP for PDF Editions

via Editor & Publisher:

The Toronto Star is killing its afternoon downloadable PDF newspaper - which was the first PDF-daily in North-America.

"... time moves on, technology advances, and new, improved products replace old ones" wrote Editor-in-Chief Fred Kuntz in his eMail to existing subscribers. The new focus is on Toronto Star's Web site , and mobile service.

PDF might still be an alternative for delivering existing products (like magazines, newspapers) but not a product you create to deliver it by PDF ... what do you think?
