Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation, unveiled a new type of journalism in the form of an app specifically for the iPad. Called "The Daily", this newspaper can be purchased at the rate of $0.99 per week, or $39.99 for a year.
Their press release states, "The Daily's unique mix of text, photography, audio, video, information graphics, touch interactivity and real-time data and social feeds provides editors with the ability to decide not only which stories are most important -- but also the best format to deliver these stories to their reads."
We can expect articles covering six major topics: news, sports, gossip/celebrity, opinion, arts/life, and apps/games. "It will offer views from across the political spectrum. They will come from across cultures and generations, across America and the world."
Oh, and my personal favorite part? "The Daily will feature Sudoku and crossword puzzles." Whoo-hoo!
Not only can you read the story, but you can listen to it or watch it, depending on each article. And in case you have something to say, you're allowed to leave comments (both written and audio allowed).
