No more Wall Street Journal articles
Even though I canceled my electronic subscription a long time ago, for some reason I kept being able to read articles for free on the iPad app. But today, it suddenly stopped working. What a bummer. But no way am I going to pay $198/year for electronic access when there’s so much news I can still read for free. Furthermore, the WSJ has recently been littering the iPad app with more and more obnoxious in-your-face advertising.
Also, the WSJ is one of those unethical companies that allow you to subscribe online but not cancel online.
The NY Times has a nice tablet-optimized website, that you can read for free if you open it in a “private” window, and has no adverstising if you use the Purify adblocker for iOS. The only downside is that it doesn’t pre-download like the app which you can read on the bus or subway where you don’t have wifi.
