I hate having to give up my email address to get information. Many websites require you to register before being able to access the ino that you need, for example - the NY Times. Sure it's free... kind of - but how much time do you spend srting through various clumps of email... you're not sure how they got your address but somehow they now want you to buy their stock tips, little blue pills and apply for mortgages.
How about a suggestion? Check out this website. Bugmenot allows you to share user names and passwords letting you bypass giving up your info. They have great sites sch as youtube, NYT, NYP, IMDB and more. There are a bunch of other great resources available on bugmenot.com.
