The Daily… Hmm….

Okay, I’m trying The Daily on the iPad free for two weeks.

Never thought I’d subscribe to a Murdoch publication. Probably won’t. But it’s intriguing to see what a daily designed for the platform can do.

It’s a graphically flashy tabloid with content that’s derivative &/or trivial. Pages and pages of gossip and sports… but a nice inaugural cover with an Egyptian democrat astride one of the lions of the Kasr Al Nil Bridge.

The Daily’s own Web site doesn’t show all its content. But this New York Times Bits Blog points to an independent tumblr site that does. Wonder how long that will last.

It also seems a bit buggy in that it often needs to be started two or three times before it runs.
