I just received this email from the Wall Street Journal. I include it here in its entirety as it is self-explanatory:

Dear WSJ Mobile Reader user:

URGENT: UPGRADE REQUIRED FOR CONTINUED USE OF WSJ MOBILE READER

Our records indicate that you have not yet upgraded to the latest version of the WSJ Mobile Reader application for your Blackberry®.

You must upgrade to the most recent version of the WSJ Mobile Reader before December 1 in order to continue using the application, as well as have access to new features and functions.

Updating to the latest version of the app is quick, easy and FREE. To upgrade today:

  • Open WSJ Mobile Reader on your Blackberry®
  • Navigate to the New Versions tab at the top
  • Click the “Download Now” button

  1. Is there something bad about the upgrade or are you just annoyed they are forcing it on you?

  2. No, just pointing out that if you are a subscriber and haven’t upgraded, then according to the WSJ you lose the use of the app.

  3. I moved their emails to spam.

    With the CNN and AP iPhone apps, WSJ is frankly not worth the trouble and I find News Corp to be obnoxious.

  4. Of course, the next step for Rupe Murdoch will be to charge users for any access to WSJ and other sites in his uber-right and greedy Empire.
