Jyoti Hariharan business potential

I think it is time for companies which secure online monetary transactions to start something securing content access as well.

Doug Vining Would you buy an app from this man?

There are two questions here: Is this a newspaper, and would you pay for it?

Isn't this app just a re-branded paid-content vehicle for Murdoch? On the other hand, iTunes are just repackaged CDs, and they sell, don't they? Is the future of news free, with advertising paying the bills, or pay-as-you read?

Wolfgang Grulke The end of the paywall experiment?

Rupert Murdoch was determined to make a success of the paywall experiment at The Times. However growth has stalled at around just 130 000 subscribers while The Mail's website and app have surged ahead of the Guardian's 3.1 million web visitors daily, capturing more than 6.5 million visitors every day. All of this is translating into strong advertising revenues for The Mail online - something that Murdoch's paywall is putting a stop to.

On a purely personal level I have stopped sharing articles in the Murdoch press, no matter how good the writing, specifically because most people can't access them. Information wants to be free...then the opportunities emerge!

That's exactly what our MindBullet published at the start of The Times paywall experiment I'm 2010 was all about.

Anton Musgrave From fee to free to fee...full circle?

In the ever changing tech influenced business landscape, business models are having to evolve with speed and ingenuity to stay relevant and ahead of the game. The content world has changed forever, pay walls are not working, industry giants are struggling to understand what will work in the future. Will Pheed start a new shift back to paid for content?

Wolfgang Grulke Top of the news apps?

The Sunday Times revealed its "Top 500 Apps" this weekend. In the 'news' category you at not be surprised to see their own app rated first! Of the others they mention such as CNN, Sky, Reuters, BBC, Al Jazeera are all free. The Times app costs £4 a week! And they don't even have the net gritty to mention their biggest online competitor - The Guardian. Someone at News International must realise that in an open world you can't fool all of the people all of the time.
