News Corp. to Launch The Daily February 2nd

The Daily, the $.99 per week iPad-only subscription periodical from News Corporation, will be launching at 11am on Wednesday, February 2nd.

The Daily is a joint effort between Apple and News Corp. to introduce a newspaper-like publication service to the iPad, and will likely be the start of Apple’s “digital news stand“. Currently, most offerings update on a monthly basis, and require massive downloads — which is inconvenient for users. Having content updated daily with a subscription service built into iOS (and not contained within the App Store or iBooks ecosystem) will be a huge step towards replacing print media.
