If you thought war photography on the front page of today’s New York Times looked different, you’re right. I did too. But I’d never have guessed that it was taken with an iPhone. Using Hipstamatic, no less!
On the one hand, you have the New York Times: “I am an internet news application!” And then you have the Wall Street Journal: “I am a colour newspaper!” And then you have USA Today: “I like Skittles!”
You’ve gotta spend money to make money, at least according to the New York Times. The paper has entered the hardware subsidisation business, offering $US100 off the Samsung Go with a $US180 Times Reader subscription. [NYT via Business Wire via Engadget]
