The Daily: The First E-Newspaper Launches

Today marks the launch if the first iPad-only newspaper and it’s the brainchild of media mogul Rupert Murdoch (who created FOX). “New times demand new journalism,” Murdoch said. “The iPad demands that we completely re-imagine our craft.”

At a cost of $0.99 per week and $40 annually, The Daily, as it’s called, is now available at Apple’s App Store. It combines video, text and interactive photography for a unique news-reading experience. The “e-paper” will offer 100 pages of content daily and users will be encouraged to share links to individual articles with non-subscribers. The modest 100-person staff is stacked with veteran journalist from Forbes, Time Magazine, The New York Times and The Atlantic, just to name a few.

But none from Travis… yet.
