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.

The Daily - a pioneer of sorts

I was an early subscriber to the Daily, a publication that proved to be redundant in the end. When it was launched, it promised content designed to show off the then unique format and multimedia capabilities of the iPad. It did that very well, but after a short time, it proved to be clumsy and slow.

An comment made earlier, said that it wasn't well written, perhaps now that is the case, but for the first six months, when I subscribed, it was in fact well written and sharp.

The iPad and other tablet devices offers a great many options for content, much of it free, so why limit yourself.
