Today is a big day for the tech industry, with announcements coming from T-Mobile, Apple and Google. We've been waiting to seeThe Daily unveiled for a couple of months now, so this event didn't hold quite the excitement of a traditional Apple press conference.
As expected, The Daily comes in at $0.99 per week, or $0.14 per day. Rupert Murdoch of News Corp was wildly optimistic about the new app's potential, claiming it will be "the model for how stories are told and consumed."
The Daily has a large stable of professional journalists and a (duh) daily update schedule. Expect big, high-res photos and HD video. A yearly subscription to The Daily is $40, which is just low enough to entice the kind of people who can afford an iPad. While News Corp had to pour $30 million (Rupert has a net worth of $6.3 billion) into the project to start it up, they estimate only $500,000 / week in operation costs.

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.
