Read The Daily When The iPad Is Away!

by on February 3rd, 2011

For those of you who have been itching to read The Daily, an iPad-exclusive eMagazine, but don’t have your iPad handy, there’s good news! Both a journalist and a programmer by the name of Andy Baio, has compiled the everyday new posts onto a easy-to-click-through homepage. One additional feature that this webpage is able to achieve that’s not yet available on the iPad, is being able to look at past issues of this eMagazine. Of course, this being a subscription based app, it is more than likely that News Corp will not want free access to the articles.

This is what Andy Baio has to say about this issue:

Frankly, I’m also very curious about the legal implications. My understanding is that linking to public news articles is unquestionably legal, and I believe that right should never be discouraged. It’s also worth noting that Google’s slowly indexing all the articles too, and search engines aren’t blocked in their robots.txt file.

But I’m still recovering from a legal nightmare last year (more on that soon), so if asked to stop publishing and delete the Tumblr, I will. (Lawyers: My email address is at the top of this page.)

In the meantime, enjoy!
