Runes of paywalls for non niche products

The news has been flying around the internet today.

The news that after three months of Newsday's in place, and a redesign costing $4 million, the number of paying online subscribers amounted to ... 35.

The paper was one of the first non niche publishers to go behind the dreaded paywall charging $5 a week, or $260 a year for unlimited access.

Enough said?
