iNews:

"Todays Headlines:

-You are actually paying for the same thing you can find for free, loser

-You are paying more than you need to for a PC

-You are Reading it wrong.

-Steve Jobs"

[citation][nom]Shadow703793[/nom]Why would you subscribe to a payed news service?!?!? There is plenty of free news sources on the Interwebs...[/citation]

It is iNews... Even if it's the same thing for a higher price, it's obviously revolutionary.


Duh.

I can't believe we're paying for something that we cat get on web for free. If you ask me, everybody on this subscrip
tion is a giant sucker.

And reading it on an iPad is not a computer screen?? I think Shadow was not putting down the regular news paper service, just a paid for digital form that you could get for free else where online.

Of course if folks like $teve Job$ and Rup€rt Murdo¢h got their way, you'd have to "subscribe" to everything on the internet. This is why I worry about net neutrality, so long as these losers are behind a paywall we can just ignore them, but if media companies start paying for traffic shaping for "premium content" this could have extremely undesirable effects for everyone else.

Newspapers still have validity. Sure, there are plenty of free online sources, but how many of those free sources are required to ensure that their information is true????????????????????????????????????

That's why newspapers will be around for a while. They can not just come up with BS and publish it as fact.

That is great news for those who have the need to advertise their douchebaggery where electronic devices are prohibited.
