I don’t buy the article at Wired. The author talks us about how ‘articles from these publishers remain distinctly, recognizably theirs’, but I see this not as revolutionary, but mandatory for publishers, who want the experience they give unchanged.
I don’t see the real difference with Flipboard -I must try both on an iPad- so I can’t speak yet about the quality of the experience, but I can’t trust an article that gives that publicity to the Apple News application when they are partners at the app launch.
In fact, they were one of the first media assets to publish something that could be only read on the Apple News app.
I do believe Apple News can be an interesting way to distribute news and content. I just think Wired doesn’t need to do this and do without even a disclaimer.
