Apple Sending New Leaders On Stage: Eddy Cue Will Help Launch The Daily Launch In NYC

There has been talk for months now that Apple and News Corp. would hold a joint event in the Bay Area to announce the launch of The Daily, the iPad-only publication. Then a few wrenches were thrown into the mix. First of all, Apple supposedly needed a little more time to get their subscription service working in a new version of iTunes. And then, of course, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced he was taking an indefinite leave of absence. Given that The Daily has been a project watched closely by News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, you can be sure that he wanted Jobs up on stage with him to present it to the world. That's clearly not going to happen now. So News Corp. likely had to switch things around. And today they have.
