Apple Does It Again - E-Textbooks

Does it come as a surprise to anyone that Apple is leading the way again, this time with E-Textbooks.  With a son in college and one on the way, it could not have come soon enough.  Textbook companies have been making money hand over fist for years.  If I weren't such a capitalist, I would scream foul, but they were only making hay while the sun was shining.  The days of $200-$300 textbooks may be a thing of the past.  Not only will folks (school systems, students, and parents) save tons of money, but the books themselves are SOOO much cooler and can be easily updated as knowledge changes.  Thanks Apple for getting this ball rolling.  Now all we need is for the powers that be to do the right thing, not only financially, but more importantly educationally.  You can read two takes on the Apple E-Texts below:
