Apple & News Corp To Hold 'The Daily' Press Event

Apple press events normally draw the interest of the entire tech industry, but that's because Steve Jobs is normally there. This latest event will be held in cooperation with News Corp to announce the launch of The Daily, an exclusive iPad periodical. CEO Rupert Murdoch will be there, along with Apple's Eddy Cue- the VP of Internet Services.

So on one end of the stage we'll have a wrinkled old Australian plutocrat famed for being cantankerous as hell. And on the other end we'll have Eddy Cue, a guy who looks like the stock "executive" character from every Hollywood boardroom ever. He even has salt-and-pepper hair with just enough pepper left in it to imply virility. Cue has also launched his fair share of Apple products.

But he isn't Steve. And neither is Rupert. Which means we can expect this February 2nd 11 AM press conference to be pretty bog-standard. They'll show off 'The Daily', try to explain why they think it won't fail like literally every other iPad-focused publication, and show us a bunch of screenshots and videos designed to amp people up for what amounts to yet another daily news website.

Only this daily news website costs a buck a week and can only be accessed via the iPad. So yeah, if that's your thing, February 2nd is the day to watch for.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
