Will you pay for Times Reader?

NYTimes doesn’t want to give full content feeds but wants to you get the Times Reader instead for $14.95 a month or $165 a year. The service which has been under beta testing and free till now will launch as a subscription service on March 27. Times Reader does offer a better user experience in a newspaper like look and feel, offline reading ability, and access to TimesSelect and Premium Crosswords. I think in future we can expect more of Times Reader type tools coming from all the major content providers as users are turning more and more towards blogs to get latest updates. From my PoV I am not going for it. First- the price is pretty steep for just one news source(I am subscribed to 1100+ feeds for free 😉 ), Second – I don’t need another reader, Third – I have ventured too far away from the journalistic news in a story style at NYT to devote much time to them. Will you pay for it?
