Times Reader beta gets an update

Times_reader_2Earlier this month, the Times Reader beta was upgraded to v to address some issues including a conflict with Norton Internet Security. Apparently, the conflict caused sychronization issues; since I use Microsoft OneCare, I didn’t see the issue. There are additional bug-fixes, but nothing major. I wanted to mention this in case people didn’t realize that the Times Reader beta is an open beta. You can sign up and download the excellent reader application for the New York Times paper. If you’re not the adventurous, beta-type, that’s fine too; I have a video demonstration of using the Times Reader on a touchscreen UMPC with Vista for your reading, er, viewing pleasure.
