Steve Jobs Speaks On Newspapers at D8 Conference

Steve Jobs, visionary and founder behind Apple, spoke at the Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital Conference last week.  His remarks emphasized his interest in the proliferation of revenue-generating avenues and increased smart-device applications for the newspaper industry.

"I don't want to see us descend into a nation of bloggers," Mr. Jobs said during an on-stage interview yesterday.  "I think we need editorial oversight now more than ever. Anything we can do to help newspapers find new ways of expression that will help them get paid, I am all for."

With the recent unveiling of the i-Pad, the next generation of apps are emerging that provide digital editions of dailies and weekly community newspapers.
