Check out how to use the Safari browser to read digital editions of magazines withough paying for a subscription.  I am publishing this information here to bring attention to the hack so it may be shutdown.

    This hack originally began in the Opera browser many years ago beforen Google Chrome, Apple Safari and Mozilla FireFox brwoser were in existence.

    It came about because online well known mainstream news sites were sub’ only. Using google search along with the basic hack allowed you access, which wasn’t always 100% but worked most times.

    This hack cannot be stopped.

    Also, you can blame the publishers for doing digital formats online whcih, always end up on file uploading sites anyway. The Economist Newspaper being one of the first that ended up in this trap of ‘free leakage’ to the net.

    And, the hack they’ve posted is in fact pretty sloppy… just take notice of the comments section for that.
