Can Apple Rescue The Press?

Last week I commented on the upcoming Apple tablet and wondered how much of an impact it would have on the publishing industry, newspapers in particular. Today, Macworld published a piece on What an Apple tablet would mean for publishing.

People are calling it the end of free. Forget about Chris Anderson’s cover story for Wired last year that describes why “free” is the future of business. There is a growing shift toward paid content and Apple is the one company that could act as a catalyst to pull this off.

I think you’ll see a whole new subscription model in the iTunes store for publishing from some major newspapers and magazines on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
