As an experiment and also because I like to read when I am out and about, I’ve tried all the different official ways to read the NY Times when I’m mobile on my phone. None of them work as well as Dave Winer’s NYT River of News. It’s actually a pretty good way to read the Times on a PC as well but it really shines on a phone. Works on just about every mobile browser. Highly recommended.
Note, The NYT iPhone App is particularly awful. It’s slow to update on a fast WiFi connection and totally useless on any other connection. The AP, Bloomberg and USA Today all have great iPhone apps, why is the Times stuff so bad?
