From today, daily newspaper The Straits Times gets a new look, and, along with it, new features, among which is weekly tech magazine Digital Life debuting today. 

Digital Life is the reborn version of The Computer Times which had its last issue published last Wednesday.

The Straits Times is 159 years old this year.

The new-look Straits Times has been redesigned to: 

- provide and accommodate new and more content

- make it easier for you to access the various sections

- ensure a sharper demarcation between news and features, analysis and commentaries

In a message accompanying today's edition, Editor Han Fook Kwang said the new daily read "contains many of our newest ideas on what we want The Straits Times to be and to do for you."

"Our fresh, new look, incorporating many of the latest elements in newspaper design, is the work of our own designers, who have won awards establishing The Straits Times and The Sunday Times as Asia's best designed papers."

"We've put news on Asia further up front in the paper, ahead of news from the rest of the world, to reflect the growing importance of the region to our readers."

Other new features include:

- weekly lifestyle magazine Mind Your Body debuting tomorrow. It comes out every Wednesday.

- weekly lifestyle magazine Urban debuting 21 Oct 2004. It is published every Thursday.
