A few weeks after that announcement, came reports of ‘The Daily’—a joint media venture between Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Murdoch exclusively for the iPad.
According to an insider, this was not a coincidence.
The Daily—the “highly visualized” and interactive tablet-only news app—will include a “Kids” section that will allegedly contain news and content targeted at the next generation of consumers.
Apparently Murdoch and Jobs are both anticipating that education and media will become primarily tablet-based in the future. Hence, the reason why Murdoch would want a top educator like Klein on board for this educational entrepreneurial endeavor.
