+ - New York Times to be More Quotable?

But today the Red Herring is running an article on the end of paid service (no word on requiring a membership, though). From the article:

The Post, citing a source briefed on the matter, said a decision had been made by top Times executives. The timing of when the service would become free depends on technical issues, including revamping the software surrounding that section of the NYTimes.com site, according to the Post report.

I'm quite sure the New York Times is just trying to get better citations on Slashdot, but could there be other motives at work here?"

I think the most pathetic thing out of that Q&A, by far, is that they basically admitted that they're basing their entire damn game on that CG movie that they didn't even have a hand in creating!

It just boggles my mind that the sequel to one of the most mediocre PS2 games ever is getting this much hype that we're even discussing this matter at all.

That does not compute.
