iTextbook coming soon

We have the iPad with iBooks allowing us to read all our favourite magazines and newspapers, but now iTextbooks will be on its way. Something Steve Jobs had envisioned way back and revealed in his biography is soon to become a reality. This will allow students to download textbooks for a fee and use them for their research and studies.

Apple has been in contact with major publishers to get them on board with the idea.

That means no heavy school bags for those lucky kids with an iPad and just less to worry about if you are a university student like myself.

we will have to wait a month till full details are released.




R.I.P. Steve Jobs

As i sit here and write this on my Macbook, i can only wonder what the world would be like today without such a great man. everything we use in our everyday lives was created and moulded in some way by the great man himself.

The news of his death early this morning comes as a shock to many followers of the Apple brand. A man who created the brand in his adopted parents’ garage and was then later ousted for his visions of the future. from there the man created Pixar who you can thank for great films like ‘Toy Story’ and ‘Finding Nemo’ but then got bought by Apple and helped the company rebrand and take over the consumer market.

He leaves not only his wife and four children but a whole a community of users who had no idea how good life was using an Apple product from something so small as a might mouse and the ipod nano all the way to having your whole life on the iPhone and Macbook.
