Apple "Apple is slated to announce the fruits of its labor on improving the use of technology in education at its special media event on Thursday, January 19. While speculation has so far centered on digital textbooks, sources close to the matter have confirmed to Ars that Apple will announce tools to help create interactive e-books - the 'GarageBand for e-books', so to speak - and expand its current platform to distribute them to iPhone and iPad users." While the textbook industry needs some massive disruption, am I the only one who thinks a solution over which Apple has total editorial control and which is limited entirely to Apple PCs and iOS devices is a really stupid idea? That's like going from Scylla to Charybdis.

Right now it's just a rumor, Apple hasn't announced anything yet.
