Liveblog replay: First look at The Daily, with screenshots

Rupert Murdoch's new iPad publication The Daily debuted today  with 100 magazine-like pages of original reporting, video storytelling and integrated social media.

Details leaked just before the 11 a.m. announcement; still after months of speculation, seeing is believing. And while some questions remain, we do have some answers: Apple has confirmed it will make subscription services like this one available to others in the near future.

My colleague Steve Myers live blogged the announcement below. (CNET News, Macworld and The Loop also blogged the event.)

Here are some screenshots of the inaugural issue.
