THIS WEEK Guardian Unlimited launched a new print edition. It updates every 10 minutes, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is free and can be found around the world. It's G24, the Guardian as a PDF. It's sharp (crisp font rendering by Acrobat does that), includes some pixelated images when Acrobat plays on an over-sized screen, and you get an advertisement pushed onto the bottom of your PDF from Google Adsense.
There are five PDFs, which will appeal to readers interested in top stories, world news, media, sport and business. No section is bigger than 10 A4 pages. You can print out what you want and take it where you wish. You just need a printer--no batteries, earbuds or laptop. Of course, you could download the G24 onto a laptop and peruse it that way but it won't feel like the Guardian that way.
