New York Post blocks Apple iPad users from reading its web site without paying for a subscription
pay-for-news publication The Daily that is available via subscription for the Apple iPad and this could be an effort by the News Corp. CEO to make sure that one way or another, News Corp. does not provide free news on the tablet. Another News Corp. paper, The Times of London, has also been put behind a firewall but that applies to all tablet platforms, not just iOS as with the NewYork Post. Murdoch is known to be against ad-supported, free news delivery to mobile internet users.
Interestingly, Android owners using the browser on their device to head to www.nypost.com are directed to the mobile version of the site while those clicking on www.newyorkpost.com are directed to the much more complex desktop version of the site. For its part, Apple had no comment on the NewYork Post's firewall blocking Apple iPad users.
