  • It means that there's an error that occurs when your browser requests access to a page. It's most likely that the page wasn't written with the mobile browser in mind, so there's some type of code on there that prohibits your browser from accessing it.

  • It's just a generic message meaning the web server couldn't fulfill the request. There's nothing you can do about it. The web server needs to make some fixes to its software.

  • They could have made some changes on their end. I usually go to the NYT app on my iphone everyday and just within the last 6 weeks or so I've had problems with it - sometimes I can't get it to open. It happened around the time the ipad came out - not sure if they're related but I do know most developers are constantly making upgrades to their mobile sites because they know that's where the growth is.

    Do they have a "contact us" link? Or you could try a google search on the problem (be specific - name the site and the code 500 error) I did that recently with a problem I was having and was relieved to find others were having the same problem and that they were working on it.

    Good luck.
