Anyone who’s ever lugged a backpack full of textbooks across a large college campus has fantasized of a better way of transporting content to a lecture hall. Add a laptop, chargers and other ancillary electronics to the journey, and chances are that you'll be dialing your chiropractor in short order.
Update: Breaking news- Apple to announce its move into Digital Textbooks on Jan. 19
It’s now official. Apple will be hosting an “education” event at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Thursday Jan 19 at 10 AM. Invitations were sent to select members of the press this week.
The invitation, which looks like a chalkboard, shows a profile of the New York City skyline with an apple wedged in its center. The text reads:
Join us for an education announcement in the Big Apple.”
The latest rumors suggest that Apple and a select group of textbook publishers will announce that students will soon be able to buy digital textbooks from the iTunes store.
