You can already get current news from The New York Times free on Yahoo. Now you can hop into the Times‘ wayback machine as far as Jan. 1, 2000, and buy archived articles for $2.50 directly from Yahoo News (http://www.news.yahoo.com).
This saves Yahoo! visitors from having to click to the Times‘ own site, which charges the same $2.50 per article. It is the first such pay-for-news archives deal on Yahoo.
