Thanks to a tip from Professor Bainbridge, Vinography has just learned that you can get all of Wine Spectators wine ratings accessible through your cellphone. Of course, you can't actually look at the advertisement for the service, or find out anything about it without first becoming a paid subscriber to the Wine Spectator Web site, which as a fellow wine blogger put it so nicely yesterday, requires you to pay for even thinking about the site (yes, even if you are already a subscriber of the magazine, like me).
<dripping sarcasm> Hmm. Yeah, I'm definitely in the habit of buying services for my cellphone without knowing what they can actually do.</dripping sarcasm> Of course, that's presumptuous of me. It turns out that I can't actually buy this service without...yes, you guessed it: first buying a subscription to the Web site!
