‘Project’ The Next iPad Magazine?


Richard Branson, best know for his foray in to major markets from space exploration to cell phones is making his way to the iPad with a magazine called ‘Project’.

Yahoo that Branson is launching an iPad only magazine this coming Tuesday that will focus on entertainment, travel, business, design, and international culture.

This is after news broke that Rupert Murdoch was working closely with Apple to launch an iPad only newspaper that will leverage a new subscription model to deliver content.

Expect to see my thoughts on what an iPad newspaper could look like.
