Apple, sometime within the month, is planning on releasing something that quote ” has been in the works for years”. Steve Jobs in his biography detailed that he had “set his sights on textbooks” stating that it was a 8 billion dollar industry set for destruction. He had been getting together with textbook manufacturers since the original iPad was released in 2010. This event is set to take place in New York, where almost all textbook manufacturers are located. Perhaps Apple is hosting an event with the textbook makers. I believe it has been Apples plan to kill textbooks for years. Now, with the iPad and its good paper-like size, they have that chance. No date for the event is known. It is something though that is catching attention. We’ll just have to see what happens in the weeks to come.
