The New York Times' management is hoping the second time's a charm with a decision to charge for online news access starting March 28, Non-subscribers will be allowed to read 20 articles per month for free, while print subscribers will get full access at no additional charge. "Hooray for The New York Times ! It's about time that the days of free content come to an end," said Patricia Vaccarino, managing partner at Xanthus Communications. The unlimited access subscription fees appear to be app-based: Non-print subscribers will pay $15 per month for a smartphone app; $20 per month for an iPad app; or $35 monthly for both.


I seldom get any newspaper stuff.

The reason why I seldom read newspapers is that I do not have the time. This adding of a price tag will not cause me to start me reading that newspaper because the cost I'm concerned with is time.
