Maybe these dif­fer­ent stan­dards are because the con­texts are so dif­fer­ent: mag­a­zines, news­pa­pers, and TV all feel cheap, since they’ve shat on con­sumers to make a few more cents for decades, but the iPad or a well-designed web­site are clean, high qual­ity, and customer-centric.

Or maybe it’s just me. I just don’t feel com­fort­able pay­ing for an iPad or web pub­li­ca­tion, no mat­ter how good it is, and then hav­ing ads shoved down my throat. It makes me feel ripped off: what did I pay for?
