Default The New York Post Shuts Down Mobile Safari

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://gizmodo.com/5813369/the-new-york-post-now-blocks-mobile-safari-vistors-from-accessing-their-web-site' target='_blank'>http://gizmodo.com/5813369/the-new-...-their-web-site</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"'You shall not pass!' booms Gandalf the Grey as mobile Safari visitors arrive at the New York Post web site this weekend. Sorry, correction: That's how it played out in my head. Reality is more mundane and mostly annoying."</em></p><p><img height="338" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1308526478.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>Now instead of getting a welcome ad promoting an app for access, you get instructions on how to get the $1.99 USD app [<a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=146261.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/new-york-post/id378590820?mt=8" target="_blank">affiliate link</a>]. The $1.99 price of the app will get you 30 days of access, and after that first 30 days you will need to subscribe at the rate of $6.99 USD per month, $39.99 USD for six months and $79.99 USD for a year. I agree with Dave Winer when he <a href="http://scripting.com/stories/2011/06/18/theNyPostTheIpadAndTheWeb.html" target="_blank">rails</a> about how Apple needs to stop sending info to the servers that I'm on an iPad, then I could use the browser to read what I want, besides it shouldn't be called mobile since its pretty much full size. What are your thoughts?</p>
