2009’s Must-Have Device

There has been a lot of talk in the press recently about Rupert Murdoch taking his news off the web and off Google in particular. Murdoch feels that content has a value and that we should be paying for that value. In a sense he is correct of course but unfortunately he is too late. If he puts News International’s content behind a paywall other free sources will still be available – the BBC for example, where I get 99% of my news from now anyway.

So it was nice to see this promotional video from the News International title the Sun today taking a tongue-in-cheek swipe (pun intended) at the iPhone saying how it (the Sun) has been the best handheld for 40 years.

Of course there is no news in the Sun and so nothing for Rupert to hide behind his paywall…
