Comments on: The huge obstacles facing Murdoch’s new tablet newspaper http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/08/13/the-huge-obstacles-facing-murdochs-new-tablet-newspaper/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Muttah http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/08/13/the-huge-obstacles-facing-murdochs-new-tablet-newspaper/comment-page-1/#comment-17296 Sat, 14 Aug 2010 22:19:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=4936#comment-17296 it’s an ideology born by an old technology, when the fogeys die off Murdoch’s Newsltd will disappear into the desert dusts of South Australia from whence it came. Right wing claptrap is not premium content. Every right wingnut and global warming denialist has their own blog now, and some are subsidised by big oil, why should I pay for something from Murdoch given so freely away by others?

Might want to add that CNN and CNBC (leftwing equivalents?) wouldn’t any more popular amongst the average iPad user.

Rather than read a single periodical most or all of the way through, we follow a story thread through links between publications. Have publishers not yet groked that, or are they bound and determined to keep their traditional business model intact?

Even the USA Today, NPR and Bloomberg apps I have are free.
