Apple Kills the Textbook with iBooks 2, iBooks Author

by on January 19, 2012

This is an absolute incredible idea thanks to Apple and Capitalism. I remember getting gouged on the price of college textbooks. There was virtually no competition for some of the texts and the major publishers had a stranglehold on the game. Along comes mobile e-readers, an awesome app-store and ibooks shopping interface, and now an authoring path where virtually anyone can get published. Competition is increased, time to market will be reduced, quality of service will go up, cost will go down. This is way better than any government run program could deliver!

‘Need to take notes? Apple now lets anyone highlight any text on the page using your finger. iBooks 2 immediately and automatically takes your highlighted notes and turns them into flash cards for later studying.’
