Hitting the Wall

Gone are the days of free endless New York Times content online. As of yesterday, the New York Times is allowing access to 20 free articles a month. After reaching the quota, a pop-up window requests that in order to keep reading a subscription is required. The subscription ranges in price, between $15-35 for a month of unlimited content depending on which platform or platforms you are viewing from (mobile device, laptop, etc).
It is rumored that the New York Times spent $40 million dollars installing this paywall and several holes have already been found enabling people to surpass their alloted 20 articles a month.
