About That NYT Paywall


So far, I haven’t had any problem getting around the New York Times paywall. First I discovered that you can simply switch browsers, i.e. form Firefox to IE, and the Times gives you another 20 articles to read. After I ran out of browsers, I just deleted my cookies and that seemed to reset the Times’s article counter.

And since I don’t use the iPhone app to read the Times on my phone, I seem to get as many articles as I want without having to resort to any trickery.

And they want me to pay to read their content? Yeah, right.

P.S. Remember, the same people at NYT HQ who signed off on the paywall plan probably think Sarah Palin is stupid.
