Fly Or Die: Can The Daily Make It?
February 06, 2011 at 12:00 PM EST
The big product launch this week was Rupert Murdoch's new iPad publication, The Daily . On this episode of Fly or Die , CrunchGear editor John Biggs and I weigh in on its prospects for survival. We also discuss Clicker's iPhone app and the Dell Streak 7 tablet , and we are joined by a surprise guest from one of the companies whose products we evaluate. While The Daily not exactly the direction I would have taken , it's paywall is easily circumvented , and it does take forever to load , it is very well packaged and a truly immersive experience. When I read it, I spend a considerable amount of time in the app flipping through pages to see what else is in store. And I'm a former magazine guy who's given up on magazines, so that's saying a lot. Biggs also finds it intriguing .
