With tongues firmly in cheeks, a team of "engineers" from McSweeneys.net ran an extensive comparison of e-readers and rated the venerable newspaper as their top choice. A sampling:
"The most obvious advantage of The Newspaper was the size of its display, which outclassed its rivals both in terms of size and elasticity. The Newspaper display could be read at full size or, when flipped open, twice its normal width. We also had no trouble reading copy when the display was flipped to half or even quarter size. One of our engineers even figured out how to make a hat."
