I thought this was rather odd.
Earlier this year when everyone in my company was undergoing a pay cut, I cut a lot of extra expenses. One of the things that got cut was the Saturday and Sunday print New York Times, which was running close to $40 a month. I replaced it with the book review by mail at $1.75 a week.
Recently I decided I'd like to get the e-edition of the Times. At about $15 a month for 7 days a week I thought that was a good deal. So I called to cancel the book review, and was told that I got the e-edition free with the print book review. The representative even tried to connect me with the e-edition folks so I could cancel, though that connection, fortunately, didn't go through. Because what I discovered is that what you got with the review was only that day's paper. If I wanted to read the Tuesday Science section on Wednesday I was out of luck. With the paid e-edition you can go back to previous issues. Not to mention that the navigation on the paid version is much better. So I called again and got the same spiel, but just told the representative what I said here.
Just so strange for one business unit of the Times to be competing against another.
