MURDOCHS digital daily finally to be launched...

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. is planning to launch The Daily, the media tycoon’s exclusive digital newspaper for the iPad, in New York on Wednesday.

News Corp. on Thursday invited reporters to a February 2 launch event at the Guggenheim Museum that will feature Murdoch along with Apple vice president of Internet services Eddy Cue.

The debut of The Daily had originally been slated for mid-January, but was delayed reportedly to allow Apple more time to tweak its new subscription service for publications sold through its iTunes online store.
