News Corp close to revealing news publication developed especially for iPad

“News Corp is close to revealing a news publication developed especially for tablet computers like Apple’s iPad, James Murdoch confirmed on Wednesday,” Georgina Prodhan reports for Reuters. “‘It’s a tablet-only product and it’s very exciting,’ Murdoch, who heads the media group’s operations in Europe and Asia, told journalists on the sidelines of an investor conference in Spain. ‘You’ll hear more about that soon.'”

Prodhan reports, “He said it was largely a U.S. product, but declined to elaborate further.” The tablet in general, it lends itself to a type of journalism that is really new,” Murdoch said, highlighting the way print looks on tablets and the multi-touch screens that encourage interaction from readers. ‘These really are becoming our flagship products, even though they’re very much in their infancy,’ he said.”

  1. There’s a lot of things that are about to happen. That doesn’t mean they’re news. This isn’t news until it happens. Then I won’t be getting any faux news distortions.

  2. In a open world, news should be able to be given out by the liberal and conservative media. Although, facts should be the most important matter.
    If we should go by Obama’s nations statement that no country should have an advantage over another. Then media should be the same.

    Oddly, Obama has no tried that with the parties. Maybe it is only an ideal or political word play to sound grand on stage. However, it should have use in life even in limited scale.

    Imagine if there was no political parties…. Ummmm, Beatles any one.

  3. … thinks people are against News Corp because THEY are biased Progressives. And that may partly be true. But even biased Progressives don’t support their own side financially, and without so much as a nod toward “the opposition” while claiming to be “Fair and Balanced”. Olbermann makes no bones about his biases, gives much more modestly, and is both more Fair and more Balanced than all of News Corp’s tripe put together. Care to fact check the two?
    On Topic: there is nothing Mac related AND On Topic for this blatantly political seedling. The entire thread is a troll.
