Check out the NYTimes reader…


The folks over at the NYTimes have released the beta of the NYTimes reader… a .NET Framework 3.0 based application that provides an amazingly rich experience for reading the newspaper… I have been on the internal pre-beta program for a while and I have found it great!  A few weeks ago I actually read the newspaper end-to-end… I don’t think I have done that in 10+ years.  


 


The other thing I love about the app is that it has a seamless update stroy, meaning I get new app features regularly as they are released… This was very exciting (and scary for demos) during the pre-beta phase… and I expect somewhat regular updates to continue…  I get these new updates with zero additional install work.. it just gets updated in place…


 


Enjoy!

    arrghh.. I am just getting comfortable with 2.0 🙂

    By the way, do you know if installing the 3.0 framework will interfere with development on my machine, using 2.0 code and visual studio?

    Thanks
