What You Need To Know Today (June/6)

This is an archived version of a Baekdal Plus newsletter (it's free). It is sent out about once per week and features the latest articles as well as unique insights written specifically for the newsletter. If you want to get the next one, don't hesitate to add your email to the list.

Apple and Steve Jobs held its annual WWDC Keynote and announced a lot of new things.

Apple also announced Newsstand, a central location for all news apps. But as I tweeted "Old business model in an Apple box. Stop thinking about selling issues - sell streams."

A newspaper or magazine, which you have to download as a daily, weekly or monthly issue, is what you do in print. Back when distribution was a problem. Can you imagine Gigaom, Mashable or Techcrunch only updating once per day, and you then have to wait for all the articles to download before you can read them?

It is catastrophically wrong. It is entirely based on a distribution model that has no merit in a connected world.
