A few weeks back, SW.com did a free 7-day trial of Hyperspace for people who had never been members of the site before. So, I went ahead and did it, figuring I could read all the stuff I was interested in over the course of a week, and since I'm still on dialup, the videos wouldn't do me any good anyway.
I read all the articles that interested me in one day, attempted reading the pre-ROTS webstrip before it crashed my browser four times in a row, and never logged on for the remaining 6 days. Needless to say, I didn't "join" Hyperspace, mainly due to my own crappy technology, but partially because I just wasn't all that impressed with what I saw during the preview.
The thing that bothers me about Hyperspace isn't so much that it exists (okay, paying for web content kind of disturbs me, but anyway), but the fact that the regular SW.com has become pretty much useless outside of the Databanks since it launched. Prior to Hyperspace, the SW site had several articles and interviews and video clips and so on, but once HS hit, and despite claims from Lucas Online that this would not happen, "regular" site updates became like a needle in a haystack, and HS was getting updated all the time.
It was like LFL was basically saying, "Unless you give us even more of your money, you aren't going to get ****." That kind of bothered me, as if LFL was drawing a line in the sand saying the only fans they cared about were the ones who were rich enough to afford the access to their information.
With no movies coming, and my total apathy and/or dread toward the idea of a live action television show, Hyperspace is a waste of time and money in my eyes.
