StarP.M. Cancelled by The Toronto Star


About a year ago, I test drove StarP.M., a free, downloadable afternoon daily newspaper in PDF format.  Every weekday afternoon since I've enjoyed this little paper with up-to-date news.  StarP.M. has been cancelled and will make their last issue available on October 17, 2007.

The email I got from the Star telling me this service was ending was a hilarious example of spin doctoring in the digital age.  The subject line read "Web and mobile services replace StarP.M." but when I read further I learnt StarP.M. isn't actually being replaced by anything.  They're just touting their existing web site and mobile version, optimized for small screens.

That's too bad, I'll miss StarP.M..
