(NWS) announced Monday that The Daily -- the iPad-only publication launched with great fanfare by Rupert Murdoch with the encouragement of Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs (and a little speech by Senior VP Eddy Cue) -- will "cease standalone publication" on Dec. 15, one month short of its second birthday.

FORTUNE -- One of the tentpole presentations of Apple's (AAPL) Sept. 12 iPhone 5 event was a demo of the eleventh major revision of iTunes, the company's much-used and not-much-loved application for serving up music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, books, apps, ring tones, radio and who knows what else.
