Post Sun-Sentinel Dolphins News Charge
Well, it finally happened to me. The proposed charging of subscriptions for online views has now hit me for the Sun Sentinel. As much as I have gone to this newspaper first for news, I am not sure if I will pay to subscribe, so, IF anyone else gets access to SS and posts on Phinfever, please consider the link of course, but then also cut and paste the news in your post so I can read it : )

Yeah they have to or they will be gone soon, they make a living charging people for a paper. Now people just go online, paper sales are down and they are trying to survive...

Just technology taking over, a newspaper is now like a cassette tape.. So if your still holding one, your just old LOL...

(PS I still get the paper lol)

I've always wondered why newspapers put stories online in the first place.

I personally love a newspaper. Really do not want to spend that much time on the computer reading. Plus you can take a paper with you.

Be sure to only post a paragraph or so from the South Florida papers, and provide a link. They make a lot of their money advertising, so, we definitely do not want to take that from them. Besides, I don't need a letter from their lawyer giving me a "cease and desist" order;)

You can also take your smart phone with you and read the same story as the newspaper and it is a lot less cumbersome.

You can get an iPhone 4 with AT&T for $0.01.

The lithium ion battery lasts quite a while and charges quickly.

And you can adjust the size of your font and it has one thing newspaper will never have.

Video.

Sorry, I was off by $0.98.

If you do a 2 year contract with AT&T that's the price of the iPhone.

The iPhone 4 is not as up to date as the 4S or the 5, but it's still a smart phone.
