Wired to add exclusive videos to their iPad app

Wired is constantly working to find new ways to promote their digital  magazine (just the ones that won’t work).Their latest idea is to give the iPad app exclusive content that they have denied their paper subscribers. I’m sure this will make the app worth $3.99 an issue.

Do you want to know my issue with Wired? I have a paper subscription that they sold to me f0r $10 a year. I refuse to pay twice for the same content. And no, these videos aren’t enough for me to change my mind. Also, given that I have greater value as a paper subscriber (ad revenue), why can’t they give me a free digital subscription as a bonus?
