Now You Can Impulse-Purchase The Economist

… and have it in your hands the next day!

Via The Guardian:

The Economist has launched a single copy subscription service that allows readers to order just one copy of the magazine for home delivery the next day.

The Economist Direct allows UK readers to place an order online or via text message for a single copy of the latest issue of the weekly publication.

Couldn’t we get all that (plus a bag of chips) delivered the next hour via urbanfetch.com in 1999?
