Being rich and powerful is great, but it leaves little time for
making friends. But as Daily Finance's Jeff Bercovici
an international media empire hasn't stopped Rupert Murdoch and
Steve Jobs from pursuing "a bromance for the ages." Bercovici notes that this week's announcement
that News Corp. would make its shows available on
Apple TV for 99 cents was the latest in a series of bro-tastic moments
between the two moguls. The Wall Street Journal is already selling
subscriptions to the iPad edition of the paper, he notes, and Apple
approved an iPad app for the Murdoch-owned The Surf letting readers see
nudity. Couple that with Murdoch's effusive praise
for the iPad, and it's clear this
bromance is heating up.
