    Why this sudden change of heart after only about just one year
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    The Irish Times along with a number of other publications are screwed. This is a desperate attempt to shore itself up.
    They made fools of themselves during the bubble.

    More annoying than having to pay...

    Having to read it in a stupid "epaper" format. Cumbersome, slow, inefficient layout and indeed buggy too (not the exact text for the story you click on).

    Plus it's a third party company getting the details of what pages/stories/etc. you read.

    Poor show indeed.

    Logged in today to see that the price has gone up. €20 for 30 days, 50 for 90 days and annual €160.

    The original plan was €9 for one month and 89 for a year.

    20 euro for one month is nuts, I don't read the paper every day, probably only 3 or 4 times a week. And on at least one of those days, usually saturday, I actually buy it. That means it will costs between 1.66 to 2.50 a day.

    I can't justify an annual account and resent being tied to a lengthy subscription.

    These prices are well steep for an eproduct. No distribution costs, no retail costs and no actual paper. Where can I put my potato peelings!

    Cancelled my subscription not paying over 100% increase. I'll just stick to online material and buying on a saturday from now on.
