The tablet market is ever-growing, as the devices continue to replace the standard desktop and laptop computer. Apple has found success in recent years in the education field, with iTunes U and the iPad. But today, News Corp. has announced plans to not only offer digital educational materials, but its very own Android tablet.
When The Daily launched in February 2011, it had everyone's attention. At a very publicized event in New York City, Rupert Murdoch announced a venture to "give readers everywhere the engaging experience of a magazine combined with the need-to-know content of a newspaper and the immediacy of the Internet." With The Daily's final issue due out on Dec. 15, it might be easy to dismiss the young publication as a failure. This is a mistake.
Well, that was fun while it lasted. The big news for Monday was the announcement that News Corp is shuttering The Daily, its iPad news magazine published each day which debuted to much fanfare two years ago. Although the publication eventually expanded to Android and even the iPhone, it failed to find a paying audience, despite the popularity of the iPad. Read on to find out the details on the closure and a few other items of note you may have missed!
