Newspapers go wi-fi

Newspapers are struggling with the realites of revenue losses and changing reading habits.  They look to wireless, but don’t really have much sense as to why.

As newspaper content zaps to more and more handheld devices, readers
will rely on daily papers not just for news, but also to solve life’s
little problems, predicts Robert S. Cauthorn, vice president of digital
media for the San Francisco Chronicle. On command, newspaper staffers
will transmit information to their readers’ cellular phones, pagers,
personal digital assistants and laptops, perhaps helping them to locate
a restaurant and even find out how long the wait for dinner is.
