Richard Branson Sees Murdoch's iPad Newspaper, Raises Him an iPad MagazineS

Freewheeling, swashbucking business tycoon Richard Branson, never to be outdone by the stodgy, old media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, has announced plans for his own tailor-made iPad Magazine, following in the footsteps of Murdochs plans to launch an iPad-exclusive newspaper.

As for details...well there aren't so many. Branson, head honcho of the Virgin empire, plans to unveil his plans for the publication at a press conference in NYC next tuesday, and claims that it will cover" entertainment, travel, business, design, and international culture," which totally isn't a generic description at all. It's still unknown whether it will be iPad-exclusive or not. But as long as the magazine has a new photospread of Branson kiteboarding with a naked girl on his back each month, I'm sure it'll be aces. [AFP]
