14 Cents a day…and your soul

Decisively rejecting its reputation as not evil, Apple has launched its newspaper for the iPad, The Daily (great name, Poindexters).

For 14 cents, you get a stunning piece of electronic design, but there's a pretty major worm in the apple, if you'll excuse the pun: it's a Murdoch publication, so it will be vacuous, banal celebrity nonsense and sport distorting the public sphere at best, and vicious, reactionary propaganda at worst, with all stories depending on the illegal interception of mobile telephones.

Oh yes, they'll also call their rivals Nazis - then deny it: see RIE's blog for evidence.
