Wolverhampton Express and Star newspaper launches an exact digital facsimile edition for just £1.49 a week…

Not sure if it includes all the supplements (jobs, houses, etc) but I’d assume so. It’s searchable by keyword, but you can’t copy-paste stories (to Instapaper/Kindle, etc). To quote a story on a blog, though, you could easily just zoom in and then use Microsoft Office OneNote to OCR the screen-grabbed snippet. OneNote works extremely well with small and poorly printed text.

I’m now looking forward to a similar digital facsimile of The Sentinel newspaper in Stoke-on-Trent. The Sentinel‘s website is there with some of the news, of course, but not all — and the site’s design makes it an extremely unpleasant navigation/reading experience.
