Shorting Another Paid Newspaper Website
Seriously....would you pay $3.99 weekly(!) for access - *premium* access - to the Boston Globe online?
I mean how many times do these newspapers have to fail with pay-walls before they get a clue?
The reality is that readers hate to even *log-in* when registration on these sites is free. So hardly anyone is going to PAY, yet again.
It seems like, given the ocean of free content online, that the only web content people will actually pay for is practical advice/instruction and of course, p0rn.
Note - the foundering Globe is still owned by the *geniuses* at the New York Times.
