With the print publishing world fighting subscriber losses and higher production costs, it is looking for anything to lure subscribers to buy the publication. The New York Times has announced a new offer that will give those who buy a year's subscription a big discount on a Samsung Go Netbook.

The discount is for $100 off the netbook and the subscription is a digital version of the paper on the Times Reader 2.0. The subscription to Times Reader 2.0 for a year is very expensive at $179.90. At that price, I can see why subscribers are staying away from print publications.

The $100 off discount for the Samsung Go is priced at $279.99 at J&R after the $100 discount making the Go not that great of a deal either. You can buy netbooks with similar performance for less than that already. Big fail on this deal, the discounts are not great.
