  • Steve Jobs Scheduled for Jan. 19th Appearance with Rupert Murdoch to Launch The Daily

    It's an announcement that leaves some wondering if there's actually a stage big enough for the both of them. But on January 19th we'll find out. That's when Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs will join media titan and News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch in San Francisco.

    Jobs and Murdoch are coming together to formally roll out the new daily iPad publication aptly dubbed "The Daily." While the date is still subject to change, Yahoo's Cutline reports that the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will be the venue where Jobs and Murdoch present a new "revolutionary digital publication."

    According to Reuters, which has also now confirmed the January 19th joint appearance, Murdoch has dropped some serious coin on the forthcoming digital publication. Some reports place his investment at $30 million. While few details are yet known about what The Daily will deliver, it is widely anticipated to cost in the range of $0.99 cents a day and feature content from a class-A collection of reporters who boast the best resumes in the publishing and news reporting industries.
