Newspaper honchos are claiming early successes for their iPad subscription offerings. However, their previous contracts in regard to Amazon's Kindle are harming the price and content of what they can offer, and Steve Jobs isn't exactly thrilled about it.

getting your fingers all inky. Amazon has deals with many of the big
national and international papers, but it remains to be seen if
dead-tree versions can be supplanted by expensive electronics.
