    "Rupert Murdoch, head of the media giant News Corp, 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, according to reports in the US media."

    Interesting article - Apple collaborating with News Corp to offer a newspaper service exclusively on the iPad.

    99 cents a week too, not bad.

    I bet John Lennon wouldn't have been so eager to get get into bed with Rupert Murdoch.

    I think if it wasn't made available on other tablets as well eventually it wouldn't be as successful, but I think it's a great idea.
