Half of Google News Users Browse But Don't Click 237

An anonymous reader writes with this excerpt from the International Business Times: "Nearly half of the users of Google News skim the headlines at the news aggregator site without clicking through to the publisher, according to new research. ... Outsell analyst Ken Doctor said in a statement that 'among the aggregators, Google's effect on the newspaper industry is particularly striking.' 'Though Google is driving some traffic to newspapers, it's also taking a significant share away," Doctor said. 'A full 44 percent of visitors to Google News scan headlines without accessing newspapers' individual sites.' ... With a number of US newspaper owners considering charging online, Outlook found that only 10 percent of those surveyed would be willing to pay for a print newspaper subscription to gain online access."

Here's what I did at an earlier job:

1) Ran Windows Server on a colo box
2) Everyone who had *nix machines could log in into this machine, and run Outlook
3) Setup a filter to *redirect* all email to an IMAP server
4) Setup local IMAP server (or share IMAP server among fellow *nix users)
5) Use any client to talk to IMAP server

This works well if there's more than one person with this situation, so you can share the Windows and IMAP resources. But that requires Windows Server, to allow multiple people to be logged in at the same time.
