Time for a little Times update, as it were. The last time we spoke about it, I was considering dumping either my Times online subscription, or stopping buying the iPad version.
Well, guess what? Since the most recur updates to the iPad app, my website subscription also gives me access to the tablet version. So, no dilemma. I keep the website sub, and get the iPad thrown in.
