New York Times Reader Launches

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.
