I’ve been wondering when Rupert Murdoch’s News Corps. officially planned to take over the Dow Jones & Co.—looks like it’s happening this week…
Other than subtle hints, he hasn’t given much direction regarding his plans for the company, although I hope he makes the online version of the Wall-Street Journal free.
Finally, a quick gift idea if you don’t know what to buy someone: magazine subscriptions. This is a great way to give a gift that lasts a year or longer, while educating someone at the same time.
My magazine wish list consists of: The Economist and The Atlantic. The Wall-Street Journal is great, but I’d only want the online version.
On a related note, I am seeking recommendations for magazines, books, or any other publications. What do you read that I may find interesting?
