    Can Apple Save Education? Posted Monday, January 23, 2012 by honger Time will tell. Apple could be even more inoavntive if they would be a bit more friendly with iBooks Author TOS for instance it's my understanding that books created with the software can only be submitted to iBooks for publishing. Also, publishing requies you have an ISBN, which is $125 per title if you are not a publishing company.

    i def neva wnt books to become obsolet but this does seem like a good idea for txtbooks. First it will save the schools so much money and it wud be a great idea if the same books were used throughtout the u.s. Now it varies so much and students in diff states even counties learn different material ... This cud actually put all american students on the same page.
