The Daily on the iPad .. kind of ok .. but does it showcase the future in news reading?
No, it is too slow, and too little articles, too little information. I want to "speed-browse" thru millions of articles and pictures. I want it to be "DIRTy", DataIntensive and RealTime. I want to swipe and cut thru a data cube of information in high speed. And for the ads, I'm fine with watching some while my data cube in the cloud does its warm-up. But afterwards, while I'm flying thru the news, don't interrupt me.
.. for now, I stick with my favorite newsreader .. the Reeder.
