I was the 19th employee hired by The Daily. My first day was November 1, 2010, and the plan was to launch the next month. Needless to say, I was scared shitless.

In what should be a shock to no-one, News Corp's experiment in iPad-only publishing is set to officially close down on December 15.
Remember when The Daily was launched by last year Rupert Murdoch? It was meant to save journalism by updating it with fresh, amazing content presented in a new and fancy tablet-only format. Doesn't look like that's working out so well, with reports pointing to the publication's demise before the year is out.
Last we heard, The Daily tablet newspaper would stay free until February 28. Now publisher Clayman tells paidContent the free trial will continue for several more weeks. Afterwards, downloads will be 14 days free, then you'll need to subscribe.
The Daily, the iPad Magazine app that you can actually read for free on a computer, just extended their free access until February 28. Why? Because users need iOS 4.3 in order to do in-app recurring subscriptions.
We weren't sure how long it would take for Rupert Murdoch's newspaper-saving iPad app The Daily to hit international iTunes Stores. Turns out it wasn't too long at all, with the app hitting Australian iTunes over the weekend.
