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.

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)

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!

How the iPad Is Influencing Web Apps

How the iPad Is Influencing Web Apps | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Great post on something I noticed over the past few months: over time our web sites have been over-worked and crowded with zillions of features which made them actually harder to use than iPhone Apps.

I have my own examples of a few sites I won't name where I'd rather use the App than the actual web site.

With the iPad becoming a significant access device and it's browser being it's #1 app (as shown in a previous post with the business insider iPad usage survey), online publishers are finally revamping the design of their web sites.

It was high time...

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.
