Some of those in the thick of battle are resigned to having a lot of company. “If there weren’t competitors, there wouldn’t be a market,” said Dan Harple, founder and chief executive of GyPSii, a mobile social network based in Amsterdam that is a contender. “Maybe there are 30 or more now — in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

has previously stated its intention to charge for online access to all its titles, so it's only a matter of timing. The original New Media Age article says the big lure for payers will be "exclusive video content". That's no surprise either. The paper's investigations (such as those involving John Higgins and Max Mosley ) are often videoed. But do they attract vast audiences? The figures do not suggest much interest.
