New York Times Paywall Begins Today

The New York Times paywall goes into effect today.  We’re sure you have already thought about what you’re going to do about it, but we thought we’d remind you anyway.

A quick refresher: You can view up to 20 articles per month, after that, you’ll have to start paying. The pay packages are $15 per month for access to NYTimes.com and a smartphone app, $20 for website access and the paper’s iPad app, or $35 for complete access.

We actually crunched some numbers and found that getting the weekend paper delivered ends up being cheaper than subscribing just to the digital. That’s all well and good, but all that paper can start stacking up in your apartment. Then you forget to take out the recycling for two months, and your mom visits and she thinks you’ve become mentally ill, or at the very least a mentally ill slob. So yeah, FishbowlNY suggests just paying for the digital package.
