Peter Ha Announces He’s Leaving Time For News Corp.

Techland editor Peter Ha announced via Twitter yesterday that he’s leaving his post as Time‘s technology expert for News Corp. to work on “something new.”

For now, he’s keeping mum on what, exactly, he’ll be working on / for, but, in response to a question from PC Mag‘s Sascha Segan, he’s ruled out The Wall Street Journal and, no, he’s not going to Fox.

He begins his new, secrecy-shrouded job next week. In the meantime, we’ll keep our eyes peeled.

On The Menu: The E-Reader Rundown

mmm_2-3.gifFrom the Alex to the Skiff, today’s mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast was all about e-readers. Hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven had a run down of all the e-readers that are coming to the market soon, including a bunch that have been announced this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Jason and Matt were also joined by Time magazine’s Techland blogger Peter Ha, who had a dispatch from CES. After talking about what he’s seen at the trade show, Peter gave his thoughts on the future of the e-reader market.

“The e-reader market is so small and all these folks are trying to jump into it,” he said. “Realistically, how many can survive? Maybe one or two.”

Also discussed: some tips for aspiring technology writers.
