In the News News Corp. has just announced its iPad-only newspaper The Daily will be closed down. What do you know, a platform-specific publication fails in the internet era. I totally did not see this coming at all. Times are changing, people. Platform-specific is so 2007.

My thoughts exactly. What they were essentially saying to Android users is "I don't want your money".

However, a major factor contributing to the fail was also the fact the newspaper was your usual Rupert Murdoch rag...

Yea iPad users and tabloid consumers are two sets quite weak in intersection.
