Silverlight Times Reader on a Mac


You may have seen people on the subway or bus reading the New York Times on a tablet PC.  You might even use the reader yourself.  The reader has gotten some really impressive adoption since launching not long ago.  But you probably haven’t seen anyone enjoying this amazing online/offline reading experience on a Macintosh.  Macintosh users aren’t shy about pulling out their machines in public places, but the New York Times Reader hasn’t been available for Mac.


Now that Silverlight is coming to the Mac, things are beginning to change.  Take a look at this demo of the New York Times Reader running in Safari on a Macintosh! 


A video interview of Kevin Gjerstad and I demonstrating a prototype of the Times Reader using Silverlight just got posted yesterday on the VisitMix front page, check it out.

    Hey,

    Does this have any offline functionality or is it just online only as I thought Silverlight was online only?

    If it does support offline, that would be amazing and something I would really be interested in speaking to you more about for my own application.
