The Daily debuts today in New York

By Hayley Tsukayama

The Daily, Rupert Murdoch's iPad-only newspaper is set to debut Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. at the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York. As we've reported before, Murdoch will be joined by Eddy Cue, Apple's vice president of internet services.

CNN got a sneak preview of The Daily on Tuesday, and wrote that the app uses a blend of written articles, high-resolution images and video for its storytelling, but is graphically similar to a traditional newspaper.

The CNN report says that the publication has integrated Twitter into its design, even pulling in Twitter conversations about article topics.

It also appears to have News Corp's trademark New York Post headline wit: one article in the Sports section is called "A Bridge Too Favre."

The potential for The Daily's success is there, but considering it will charge for its content while some other similar iPad apps do not, it will have to be quite compelling and offer something new for its readers. More iPad news:

We are all news "junkies", always wanting to be the first to ask "have you heard?" There's also an exclusivity factor to only getting it on the iPad. Everyone wants in to something they are restricted from, like getting into an exclusive club.

If the "Daily" offers updates, more of an "Hourly" news update, it will be a huge success. I want an iPad already.
