Maybe not. The New York Times is currently packaged in many ways. The "print" edition, the "web" edition (US and Global), the "electronic" edition, Times "skimmer", Times "reader", a "mobile phone" edition and RSS feeds, via Times "widgets". I'm pretty sure if one of these doesn't play well on the Apple tablet or someone's wireless e-book reader, The Times will be able to repackage itself yet again for that format. Actually, after playing with it, I think the Times "reader" edition is probably perfect for a tablet or e-book. As the current publisher and chairman, Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., said in a 1994 New York magazine interview: "Hell, if someone would be kind enough to invent the technology, I'll be pleased to beam it directly into your cortex. We'll have the City Edition, the Late City Edition and the Mind-Meld edition."
