Well, you knew it had to end sometime. Disappointing news out that The New York Times Reader service is out of Beta and in order to use the service you’ll need to plop down $165 a year (or $14.95 a month.) I like the software very much and have grown quite accustomed to it. But not so accustomed to it, that I will fork over that much of a subscription fee a year. The NY Times can certainly charge what they want for their content, but it is just too steep a price to continue enjoying the benefits of the great software for my pocket book.
To see what all the fuss is about, you might want to check out this Software InkShow on the New York Times Reader.
Maybe other publishers using the Windows Presentation Foundation will see a potential benefit in offering lower priced access to their content.
