    True not much of that cola around and no doubt a bit embarrassing at the time but he's aiming for a majority of ideas to succeed not all of them. In practice, several Virgin businesses fail each year while the good ones help pay for the rest.

    I hope he gives it a try before giving up on the idea completely. There's clearly fertile ground here in the IPad media market. People are not done making boatloads of money for being creative.

    I've downloaded the content. Some interesting ideas, but pretty buggy. App crashes on my iPad regularly.

    Precisely. Is there anything they're doing that truly benefits from a custom app. Yes, the eye candy and gimmicky interaction is improved, but what about the user experience? So far ive yet to see any magazine apps that are actually better than a website. A well designed stylesheet would be my preference. And yet we are expected to pay for the gimmicky but inferior experience. I predict continued fail.
