Great post from Daring Fireball that sums up why the NYT pricing scheme is ridiculous. Mark that down for any company charging different tiers of pricing based on the device. How about this, I’ll pay you for your content, and I get to watch it or read it in any way that I want.

★ A Rule of Thumb: Pricing Should Be Simple:

“The New York Times’s legacy business is the printed newspaper. They charge less for a print subscription than an all-inclusive digital subscription, despite the fact that all print subscriptions include an all-inclusive digital subscription. This makes no sense. You pay less but get something that intuitively bears a significant real cost: hundreds of pounds of printed newspaper delivered to your home throughout the year. The pricing steers people toward the legacy business.”
