    Although I'd definitely buy Newspapers or Magazines more if I could just view them on an iPad (though looking at the iBooks store, it's probably gonna cost too much).

    They should focus on getting more books first. Of the last 5 books I've read only 2 have been available on iBooks.

    Oh, simple Apple,simple Apple, whatever shall we do?
    You're very funny, and we love you, but you never think things through.

    I honestly was thinking of a physical news stand with a dock connector in public places as i read the title. just put in 50 cents, then connect your iOS device [except Apple TV, obviously], then the digital news stand will transfer the latest copy of the news to your iOS device. It would be super interesting...

    Only Apple could get away with charging for things you can get for free pretty much anywhere else. Like $30 for half of a sock that does nothing but make my iPod unusable while it's on.
    Yeah, I'll get my news from Fox News's app before I pay to read it on an iPad.
