确认了不是“钓鱼”,不是“木马”,不是“spammer”后,简单填写了地址,获得了一年的 Economist 的免费订阅,包括实体杂志和网络存档。虽然使用 RSS 可以免费看到 Economist 的更新,通过学校的网络订阅可以查询过刊,但是一直还是希望能看到实体的杂志。可是即便是按照学生的价格订阅,仍然“价值不菲”。没有想到在该吃午饭的时候,能赶上一份“免费的午餐”。当然,既然是 Oracle 买单,用户信息自然是和 Oracle 分享了,不过对于我而言问题不大,能收到 Oracle 的一些宣传品也不错。其实 Economist 的网站上以前提供过花旗银行赞助的免费的 PDF 和 Audio Book 格式的杂志,可以方便的放在掌上电脑或者 Ipod 上阅读收听,但是来回的转换传送还是比较浪费时间,不如实体杂志方便。
