Magazines on iPad: The New York Times on Newsweek, Wired, and More

In "A Race Between Digital and Print Magazines" The New York Times gets right to the heart of the issue involving long download times for magazines: publishers want to replicate every jot and tittle of the print edition rather than repurposing the content for iPad.

First Look at The Daily

Today's the first day of publication for The Daily, News Corporation's (Rupert Murdoch) ground-up iPad news publication.

The Daily has a two week free period sponsored by Verizon; after that it will be $0.99 per week or $39.99/year.
