Will You Pay To Read NYTimes.com?

By

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=173670"> It looks like the New York Times won't have free, unlimited access to daily articles much longer. The site plans to organize a pay wall that will block off access to further articles after reading a yet specified number of pieces a month. What's the cause of this? Apparently we can blame our good 'ol economy for backing one of the biggest US publications into a wall. The company seeks a way to offset industry-wide losses in print advertising revenue, declines that have been exacerbated by the Great Recession that began in 2008. Ad revenue declines last year were not as steep as in 2009, but against what should have been easy comparisons, ad sales might have been expected to move into positive territory. New York Times Co. has said that the metered pay model will allow it to keep enough of a free presence to be seen in Google searches, which are now one of the most important ways for any publication to stay relevant on the Web. <a href="http://widget.uproxx.com/b/52/http://www.marketwatch.com/story/nytimescom-says-it-will-soon-charge-for-access-2011-03-02">[Market Watch]</a> Monetizing articles on NYTimes.

Apple Wants To Give You Better Music

By

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/what-will-apple-announce-today"> For the past couple of years I've been obsessed with updating the sound quality of my music library. Between albums I ripped over 10 years ago and the one's I've ripped now, there's a noticeable difference when the iPod's on shuffle in my car. Steve Jobs cares about my predicament and wants to make amends. According to CNN, Apple and other online music stores are in talks with the record labels to sell "premium" quality tracks closer to the original recordings,"What we're trying to do here is fix the degradation of music that the digital revolution has caused," chairman of Universal Music Group's Interscope-Geffen-A&M Jimmy Iovine said at an HP news conference. "It's one thing to have music stolen through the ease of digital processing. But it's another thing to destroy the quality of it. And that's what's happening on a massive scale." Compared to the quality of streaming music, 16-bit compressed files available from digital music retailers are much better, but the come nowhere near the quality of the recordings you hear on a CD or vinyl. The disparity in sound quality between mp3's and physical media has been known for years though. Why the big fuss about restoring lost sound quality to music fans now? The problem is while Apple computers and iTunes can handle tracks with the 24-bit sound, most portable electronic devices, including current iPods and iPhones, can't handle the higher quality audio files. Apple would have to revamp their next generations of MP3 players - and customers would have to buy the new products if they want improved sound. <a href="http://mashable.com/2011/01/18/ipod-touch-sales/">iPod sales have leveled off</a> over the past few years.
