Rupert Murdoch Creates ‘iNewspaper’ — With The Help Of Steve Jobs (Guardian)

News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch and Steve Jobs, the chief executive of Apple, are preparing to unveil a new digital “newspaper” called The Daily at the end of this month. There will be no “print edition” or “web edition”; the central innovation, developed with assistance from Apple engineers, will be to dispatch the publication automatically to an iPad or any of the growing number of similar devices. With no printing or distribution costs, it will cost 99 cents a week. TechCrunch: From a reader’s perspective, the optimal iPad newspaper should be three things: It should show what your friends and the people you trust are reading and passing around, both within that publication and elsewhere on the web; it must be as realtime as possible to keep up with the news cycle (a “daily” already sounds too slow); and the device should know where you are and should serve up news and information accordingly.
