Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

Wouldn't count on that. Just because the format is Epub doesn't mean it won't be encrypted with Fairplay like everything else from iTunes (except music). iTunes movies are standard MP4 with AAC and H.264, but you still can't play them on anything but Apple devices unless decrypted. Epub is open, Apple... less so, and you can bet there will be publishers demanding DRM.
