Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch set to launch iPad newspaper?
Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Newcorp head Rupert Murdoch may just be ready to test the waters with an iPad (and tablet) only "newspaper" called The Daily:
Like the Kindle, this new style "newspaper" would be pushed automatically to iPad owners so they could just turn on their device and start reading. Jesse Angelo, managing editor of New York Post is rumored to be coming on as editor.
Several things are true: traditional print news is on the decline, iPad sales are soaring and competing devices in the same class will finally start appearing next year, Apple needs a good subscription content service, and Newscorp needs to find a way to sell premium content to support their news gathering.
If they could line everything up correctly, would you be interested in The Daily?
