News International’s next experiment with paid content is about to begin:

Apple and News Corp. sent out invitations to a February 2 event to unveil The Daily. The press event will include News Corps. Chairman & CEO Rupert Murdoch and Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. The duo are expected to provide all the juicy details on the iPad-based newspaper and confirm the product’s 99-cent weekly pricing.

Daily still seems like a very strange concept in the internet, publishing-on-demand age.
