Return of the widow

I am addicted to my iPad, and I particularly enjoy reading newspapers and magazines again, free from annoying links and comments from crazy fellow-readers (otherwise known as Web 2.0). They are starting to restore page layout.

However, you have to get used quite a bit of careless editing - for some reason, more typos than the paper versions, headings that revert to plain type, references to pictures (right) when they are in fact somewhere else. And spectacular widows - particularly in The Times and The Economist (see above... well, OK, below).
