Apple to Hold Press Event Next Month?

Apple may be preparing to hold a press event in which they will announce true recurring subscriptions for iOS apps. The event would also feature News Corp's new tablet newspaper, The Daily.

John Gruber, from Daring Fireball reports:

My understanding is that this initiative is going to launch with a press event, with Murdoch (and perhaps other newspaper and magazine executives) joining Steve Jobs on stage. This is not going to be a quiet launch, to say the least. But "this month" is effectively already over, considering that Thanksgiving is Thursday, so it won’t happen until next month at the earliest.

(The date I’ve heard is December 9, but that's a Thursday, which would be somewhat unusual for an Apple press event. My guess is that they're telling people December 9 but it might slip back to Tuesday or Wednesday the week after. Perhaps it will coincide with the opening of the Mac App Store?)

The key, though, is that what News Corp is working on is not an iPad counterpart to an existing newspaper, nor is it an "online newspaper" in general. It's a "tablet newspaper" — and, at least for now, specifically an iPad newspaper.

News Corp is owned by Rupert Murdoch and is the parent company of "Faux News." Why would you pay to read stories about "Obama the Nazi" or "anyone who disagrees with conservatives is Hitler reincarnated"? I'm sure many will end up paying for the fake "Daily News" subsription though...SMH!
