Times Reader Closer to Launch

Written by Marcus Grimm

Several months ago, readers heard about how the NY Times & Microsoft were working together to create a new reading experience. It seems as if the beta version of this product will be launching soon, though I’ll be curious to see if the Average Joe can give it a spin. When originally announced, Times Reader was only going to run on certain versions of Windows Vista, and if you’ve been paying attention to the news, Vista isn’t anywhere near close to launch.

If you’re the gambling sort, you could download a beta version of Vista, but that’s a bit of work (and risk) just to read the newspaper, isn’t it?

The Times Reader guys have been good about responding to blog traffic. Maybe they can tell us if the Times Reader beta launch will run in anything besides the Vista beta.
