Always remember this stuff isn't real.
It's kind of funny to think that they didn't have any internet in Star Wars.
it's this book good ?
In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light
There is the HoloNet, but I think that's actually more along the lines of television (one book I have has a scene where Han is watching breaking news on the HoloNet), and holofeatures.
There are also mentions of hyperspace messages, which is probably equivalent to e-mail.

I watch breaking news on the internet.
Pretty sure the Holonet is a combination internet/cable TV thing for faster then light networking.

I am personally in favor of no internet. The imperiial takeover makes more sense in that case.

I've been reading the Star Wars comics in trade paperbacks so I didn't pre-order this. However, when prices jumped up to $40 on eBay I got damn curious as to why everyone was so jazzed for this book. I managed to find a newsstand copy yesterday. I still don't see why it's such a collectors item, but did I enjoy this book. This is Luke and Leia. Han and Chewie. Vader. The characters I grew up with.
This is the kind of story I've always wanted more of. Del Rey's novels have become a plodding mess. (Thankfully, they appear to be heading in the right direction.) This? This was Star Wars. (Could have used a little less narration, though.)
Question: Where was the digital code? I looked and I don't think the newsstand copies have them.
