Big Push for iPad and Tablet-Based Publications

It appears that News Corporation and Apple are really trying to make The Daily a total success and delayed the publication to figure out how to make it most successful.

Magazines not long ago saw a drop in readership on the iPad and the news must have been discouraging to Apple. This is the reason for the delay I think as Apple wants to make The Daily as successful as any print newspaper has been and possibly revolutionaize news. Rupert Murdoch probably wants the same thing to happen as does Steve Jobbs.

Apple might see the future of newspapers not on newsstands but on electronic devices such as the iPads and other tablets. Can this be the true savior of the journalism industry and “print” media? Could we, as journalists, be working from our homes and actually making big bucks while reporting, writing, and taking images-videos of news and features?

Yes, many of us are already doing this, but I mean with nice profits added on and the professions shifting this way from newsrooms. I think a journalism degree and good writing should account for something. Combined with being Web savvy, being able to edit videos, blog and add Images — we should be compensated for our work — even though we love it and would do it anyway.

I myself hope to write for some big publications or at least be compensated for my writing and would love to see online magazines and newspapers, even ones exclusive to tablets, a huge success.

Publishing eBooks on the App Store, writing for online media outlets and newspapers as well as blogging are perfect examples of citizen journalism, new media and traditional good reporting converging. Now with the iPad and the tablet revolution, lets hope the success and reinvention of journalism will finally happen. Despite common perception, I think it’s a great time to get into the field.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your web page.

  2. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site. It seems like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thanks

  3. Look for patent law firms to find very affordable ipr law services.
    Hopefully, if any such inventions exist, the search will locate them.
    In addition, many native born Israelis speak English fluently because it
    is mandatory in Israeli schools.
