The London Evening Standard, which changed ownership last year and has been busy with a new business plan, will now be offered for free.

The paper has made recent attempts to gain a greater readership, and the London Evening Standard has been dabbling with providing the content for free.

Starting October 12th, the London Evening Standard experiment will be the next indicator of the future of printed news.

Implications - Since many people just log onto the Internet for their news, papers are starting to lose quite a few of their readers. After 182 years, the London Evening Standard is feeling the pressure of modern technology. Hopefully providing their paper for free will interest previous paper readers.
