Baltimore Sun lets subscribers read digital newspaper for free

    Last week the Baltimore Sun has finally figured out that it wasn't paying off to only allow subscribers a limited number of views a month without paying an additional fee.  They have just launched a nice online version of the paper that is emailed to subscribers each morning.  The format is as nice as reading the paper version.  For quite a while I was able to read the paper online with Google Chrome browser that gives you an option of going "incognito" when you right click on the Sun link.  The new Sun version makes this method obsolete.  The Sun is finally "going with the flow" to digital.  One advantage is that they can now give advertisers the number of views of their ads.  One feature for advertisers that I didn't see is to lead the viewer to the advertiser's website by clicking on the ad.


P.S.
