Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch To Unveil “The Daily” Next Week?

According to Yahoo’s The Cutline, Steve Jobs will join Rupert Murdoch to unveil the highly anticipated iPad-only digital newspaper, The Daily, at a media event in San Francisco later this month:

Rupert Murdoch will unveil News Corp.’s much-anticipated iPad newspaper onstage this month with Apple chief executive Steve Jobs, The Cutline has learned.

The two media moguls will appear together at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, according to a source familiar with preparations for the event. The launch date is expected to be Jan. 19, but that may change.

In December, rumors surfaced that The Daily was set to debut, or at least announced, in the “week of January 17”. The same report by All Things D suggested that Apple may release a new build of iOS to include the rumored app subscription service, the same feature we heard was once set to be made available in December.

Details on News Corp.’s “The Daily” leaked in the past months pointed to the iPad-exclusive nature of the publication, and the fact that Murdoch had assembled a “super-team” of 100 journalists to work on the newspaper. The Daily, according to the rumors, should come with a new iOS functionality that will allow iPad users to get new content every day automatically, in the background, directly from The Daily’s servers.
