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?

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
