How Apple is betting on long-tail publishers (makes me think of Google with long-tail advertisers)

How Apple is betting on long-tail publishers (makes me think of Google with long-tail advertisers) | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Very interesting analysis by Frédéric Filloux about how Apple is changing the game to favor small independent publishers or new initiatives from groups of journalists (maybe like The Atavist -see previous post).

At the expense of large media which go ballistic against its new commercial model for iPad publishing.

It reminds me of Google's ad strategy which was built focusing on long-tail small advertising with low bargaining power.

Latest Update on Project Magazine: Still No Updates

Apparently failing to deliver on its initial promise for a monthly update, Richard Branson's Project starts pissing off some bloggers.

Declining motivation because of disappointing initial sales or warming-up issues that will be rapidly fixed?

Funny addition: in the meantime Virgin Media warns firms of gadget risk... particularly the iPad (http://bit.ly/gCU42Q). LOL.

Per GigaOm, curation is what media should focus on. Not just iPad Apps. | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
The enthusiasm iPad users had for magazine apps seems to be waning, according to some recent numbers that show sales of many apps slipping. Hopefully some publishers are starting to realize that simply having an iPad app doesn't qualify as a digital content strategy.

"I don’t understand why anyone would ever think that adding a presentation layer on top of web based content would make it something people would want to purchase when they are not willing to purchase the same content directly on the web." (Ventura Capitalist Fred Wilson)

Rupert Murdoch - iPad Newspaper Set for January Launch

Rupert Murdoch - iPad Newspaper Set for January Launch | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Rupert Murdoch the Australian-born international media magnate and CEO of News Corp. has finally come out with the date of launch of its much talked about iPad Newspaper. News Corp. plans to launch the publication on January 17. It will come out daily, it will sell for 99 cents a week, it will use lots of video and it will have cool multimedia bells and whistles, including some kind of 3-D effect that lots of people are very excited about. And Apple CEO Steve Jobs may or may not participate in a launch event. Most important for other media companies: The Daily is supposed to use a new “push” subscription feature from Apple, where iTunes automatically bills customers on a weekly or monthly basis, and a new edition shows up on customers’ iPads every morning.

How the iPad is changing the Web (and not just killing it) | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
According to Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine, "the Web is dead". Because of Apps.

I largely agree with what he wrote on how siloed Apps are against the fundamental nature of the WWW but here's an interesting counter-trend: publishers now using HTML5 and advanced browsers such as Chrome to revamp their sites.

Here's the New York Times example!

iPad news apps may diminish newspaper print subscriptions in 2011 | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Among the 931 respondents who indicated that they currently subscribe to print newspapers, there is a statistically significant, moderately strong, positive correlation between iPad news consumption and the likelihood of canceling their print subscriptions. For example, more than half (58.1%) of the respondents who subscribe to printed newspapers and use their iPad at least an hour a day for news said they are very likely to cancel their print subscriptions within the next six months.

Digital Magazine Sales Slump on iPad

Digital Magazine Sales Slump on iPad | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Following a bright start and lots of expectations, iPad magazines sales seem to be disappointing.

As an example, from over 100,000 digital magazines for Wired's first digital iPad issue in June, sales slumped to 31,000 digital copies in September, followed by 22,000 in October and 23,000 in November, per WWD.

The decline in iPad magazine sales is all the more alarming, considering the rapid expansion of the potential market over the same period. The total number of iPads sold jumped 565% from 2 million at the end of May to an estimated 13.3 million by the end of the year. Yet iPad magazine sales have not only failed to scale up in comparable fashion -- they have declined, often by double digits.

How the iPad is Changing Online Reading | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
While many have speculated that the iPad is going to replace printed newspaper and magazines, it is already changing the way we read online content too.

(...)

Aside from a quick lunch hour at their desk, iPad owners are no longer doing the majority of their reading on their computers. They are saving it for their personal prime time, when they can relax comfortably, iPad in hand and burn through the content they found during the day.

“We love magazines,” says Evan Doll, co-founder of Flipboard. “There’s something great in terms of the graphic design, typography and emphasis on the visual side. And there’s also the fact you have editorial — someone filtering down the new stuff, telling you what’s important, interesting and worthwhile. Both those things we wanted to try to marry with social.”

There really isn't much of a "tablet" market

There really isn't much of a "tablet" market | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Interesting analysis from Marco Amrent, the ex-Tumblr lead developper, who believes analysts are confusing the tablet market with the iPad market. The market for the latter, he says, is very limited because of the lack of the equivalent ecosystem Apple managed to create and which is hard to replicate.

Not sure I agree as Android faced the same challenges on the touch-smartphone market but worth thinking about before predicting RIM or Samsung's wins in that game.
