Publication may be heavy on photos, shared media
Some early content information has leaked on The Daily, the iPad-centric News Corp. publication expected to be announced on January 19th. The website associated with the app -- thedaily.com -- is said to contain a number of secrets hidden in its source code, most notably a graphic depicting two photo-heavy pages from the app featuring Oprah Winfrey and Brett Favre, respectively. These may simply be mockups, as the Daily team has allegedly been creating sample issues for several weeks.
One section in the code is labeled the "Story Carousel," with forward and back buttons presumably meant to scroll through articles. Another area is titled "Share Links," said to suggest the possibility of sharing via Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Reddit or Newsvine. A "Footer" section contains links to icons for Twitter and Facebook as well as Vimeo and YouTube.
