By my count there are at least 13 ways to read the Times: Paper, iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Kindle, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Web, Mobile Web, Replica, Times Skimmer, Time Wire, and now Today’s Paper. We don’t need more ways to read the same content that better imitate the past. We need the existing applications and websites to be much much better and focused on the future of news consumption. —
The platform-specific apps aren’t a problem, but the fact that The Times has so many different ways to read the exact same content on the web is damning. Why not work on making the standard web view less cluttered and more elegant instead of creating an entirely separate view?
Amazingly, even with solution out there, the Times still hasn’t figured it.

“Blue Movie,” which included scenes of Mr. Waldon and Viva having sex, appeared briefly at the Andy Warhol Garrick Theater in 1969 before censors removed it and fined the theater’s manager. A program note said it was “about the Vietnam war and what we can do about it.”
In a review in The New York Times, Vincent Canby wrote: “It opens with a medium close-up of Viva, looking rather more fit than usual (and sometimes even beautiful), and Louis Waldon, a pleasant, stocky, 30-ish man, fully clothed, wrestling on a bed. Without too much hesitation they make love, then talk a great deal, have some hamburgers, talk, take a shower — all of which, of course, dramatizes what we can do about Vietnam.” —
The Golden Age.
(History: That dis of Viva’s looks? Canby never wrote a review of a movie with Michelle Pfeiffer in it without noting his opinion that she was beautiful.)

Get the “-gate” suffix ready, because the New York Times’s David Segal is on the case of another despicable Apple act.
“I Switched Phones. Where Did Those Text Messages Go?” (tip o’ the antlers to Kontra).
Oh, sorry, that’s Pulitzer Prize winner David Segal. He, of course, being part of the team that discovered Apple does business in China, where many workers are mistreated. (Small footnote: Some other companies maybe do business there, too? Not really sure.) —
So cute how the Times feels a pressing need to beat on Apple. And do it with such ineptitude.
And, yes, query what it says about it’s premier group of journalists? (My favorite Timesman’s still the finance reporter whose wife was spending them to bankruptcy a second time and he was unaware until after it happened.)
