The New York Times Reader Beta

Wed Oct 11, 2006 3:28 am

Anyone else try it yet?

This download is pretty cool. Currently it’s in beta testing, and there are some bugs but all in all it’s one of the best downloads of the year.
Note: Not available on the MAC yet. And the Times Reader runs on Microsoft’s new Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), which is built into the new Vista operating system and is included in the .Net 3.0 Framework service pack for Windows XP.

Once the full release is ready I might cancel my electronic edition and start reading the Times Reader instead. If you haven’t tried it yet, here’s a link:

Here’s a screen shot from the business section. I wonder if anet has read about this story yet? LOL!



You’ll just have to try it out to get what I’m talking about, but basically it’s the perfect blending of the print edition, the online edition, and the electronic edition.
