looks like rupert murdoch and his fey son james finally got around to looking at myspace on their iPad and didn’t like what the saw. considering the redesigned myspace website looks like sh**t on the iPad. digital music news got it right when they wrote that myspace music president courtney holt got his walking papers. as news corporation, unlike the previous companies where holt worked like interscope and mtv, is actually a real company with shareholders and people to answer to. murdoch and co. generally pull the plug on non-preforming executives and non-performing companies after 2 years. so we predict that ‘the daily’ –ruperts new iPad newspaper will go belly up by wee hours of 2013.
and now, for the time being, the murdochs are dealing with the myspace fire sale. well hell, if friendster even found a buyer we’re sure myspace can. but one day soon we hope that someone will realize that friendster and facebook and myspace are just frickin’ websites.
