NY Post Goes App-Only For iPad Users 218

bfwebster writes "Browsing the web this morning, I discovered that the New York Post is blocking iPad users from reading its website via Safari. Instead, iPad users must download and use the NY Post App instead. That app previously required a paid subscription (which is one reason I didn't use it); however, the version I downloaded this morning isn't making any demands for payment. Yet."

    So all the smartest people in the world (Apple Users) will now be the best informed. ;)

    The current headline for the NY Post is "Prolific sperm donors find they have fathered dozens of children". This isn't a walled garden, it's a hydroponics setup for Zombies.

    You can leave a garden (so-called by the owners) as easily as enter it. Since iPad users are prevented from leaving

    But iPad users can leave any time as well. They can if they wish use other browsers that allow manipulation of the user-agent string.

    If you are talking about something else, iPad users can always jailbreak. It's not illegal, and does not void the warranty (just to head off the ignorant among you out there that will come back and claim it does).

    Those who would pay for confinement inside a walled jail must really fear the outside world...

    Those who would fear to enter a well-cared for garden just because the entrance is a little far from the shady benches, must be complete and utter morons, caring only about ideology and nothing about practical matters.
