Rupert Murdoch's iPad daily newspaper The Daily has now been launched. You can download it for free, but to keep on getting it, you'll have to pay $39 a year, 99 cents a week or (as Murdoch likes to say) 14 cents a day.
In its inaugural editorial, the paper says
New times demand new journalism. Modern technology has given us more ways to tell stories than ever before — words, pictures, audio, video and interactive graphics. The Daily will deliver them all.
These amazing times also demand new ideas, and The Daily will deliver those too.
We live at a moment of unprecedented social and technological transformation, of political tension in the United States and upheaval abroad. These times call for arguments that push beyond calcified partisanship and the political battles of yesteryear. We need new voices that inform, entertain and provoke.
