Newspapers Are Dead

Ear­lier today, I launched The Daily app on my iPad. It imme­di­ately started to down­load today’s issue. This was the headline:

The Mummy Returns

The Mummy Returns

Sev­eral news­pa­pers came in this morn­ing with a sim­i­lar headline.

Newspaper headlines today

News­pa­per head­lines today

I thought, wow. After all that’s hap­pened Mubarak won’t step down? Wow. A lit­tle while later the story changed. Turns out he decided to step down after all. The head­lines on news­pa­pers remained the same. We’ve got to wait for tomor­row to get the lat­est on that situation.

In com­puter terms, we say The Daily isn’t hard, it’s soft — it can be edited. That’s a pow­er­ful thing. Because a few hours later, the head­line and news changed to this:

Mummy's Curse Lifted

Mummy’s Curse Lifted

That’s my paper­less dream. Paper must go. I mean, ok, there are times when the news­pa­per is con­ve­nient - say there are no iPads lying around or there’s no inter­net to even start with. Then yeah, yeah…
