The next generation Times Reader desktop application, built by NY Times and Microsoft, has just gone live. At the end of August Read/WriteWeb published exclusive pre-launch screenshots of Times Reader, but now you can download the app and see for yourself. Note that it requires a Windows XP machine and the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0. Once downloaded and installed, you will need to login to the application using your NY Times website username and password.
What a damn shame – they could have finally gotten me as a reader with this app. But I am not signing in. I just don’t have enough login/passwords in me to dedicate one to the NYT. Their loss, I think.
Me, I get most of the important NYT content from other blogs anyway.
