  1. Media companies need to clean up the presentation of the articles first. How many times have you visited a local news website, only to be bombarded with pop ups and flash advertisement that takes half of your screen? While FOX and CNN are prepared for mobile – the local newspaper are not. They are going to die a slow death until the bigger media companies can swallow them whole.

    My second point – sending personalized news will never work. Subscription based on selection is here to stay. Adding value to the information is key to mobile publishing. For an example – http://www.jailface.com Android app uses the GPS on user’s phones. When an article is within specific miles – it will notify the user.

    Subscription to content and filtering seems to work in the mobile space.
