Apple Revolutionizes Textbooks.

Standard

Today Apple announced they will begin, as of today, selling iBooks textbooks. The textbooks which can be purchased via the new iBooks 2 come in at $14.99 or less! As many educators know one physical textbook can range from $60 to $100, students damage them in many ways like writing in them or tearing pages, and four or five books in a backpack can weigh in at close to 30 pounds! Not only will this improve young growing adults posture but this means less garbage in landfills and less paper consumption. Now the only problem is for low income families to muster up $500+, which can be next to impossible. In this area the iPad will practically pay for itself when you consider the educational benefits that it can provide outside of the new texbooks.

  1. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
