The Electronic Edition of The Birmingham News parades political, athletic, and cultural coverage from a newsroom that flaunts two Pulitzer Prizes and draws upon wisdom accrued during more than a century in print. A 14-day archive of past issues lets readers catch up on missed pages as they view articles in text-only modes, scroll through a replicated image of the paper, or interpret top stories told via shadow puppets. Subscribers can track down pieces with word or phrase searches, download issues for offline browsing, or acquire the paper’s iPad app from the iTunes App Store. Digital porches delight as the electronic edition lobs the same stories as its printed counterpart, which bundles together technology, business, and college-sports updates, as well as dispatches from a skilled cyborg weather team.
