Rupert Murdoch and Steve Jobs plan to launch an iPad-only newspaper called the Daily later this month?
The rumour is that the media magnate Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation and Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, have figured out what the world needs – an iPad-only newspaper with one hundred percent original content. Reportedly, they have gathered no less than 100 journalists on the 26th floor of the News Corp building in New York in an effort to create a team that will set the world alight and revolutionize the online media game.

According to the rumour, the iPad newspaper is set to be called the Daily and among the staff hired to work on this project are Pete Piction, an online editor for the notorious British tabloid the Sun, which is the best selling of all UK newspaper and Sasha Frere-Jones, former music critic at the New Yorker. The Daily's content is set to be US-focused and it is rumoured to cost $0.99 per month. Official announcement is expected to take place before the end of the month. So, a question for the iPad owners – are you ready to give the Daily a try if it's actually launched? After all, it's rumoured to have original (and presumably) high-quality content that would be iPad-exclusive and when we take into account the iPad's popularity, this may be a great move by both Apple and Murdoch. How well do you think it will fare?
