“Let me show you another… one of our apps. That’s an ebook reader. Now Amazon has done a great job of pioneering this… we’re going to stand on their shoulders for this. Our new app is called iBooks.” -Steve Jobs
iBooks. e-books (like the kindle) and a new iBook store, will have best seller lists, 5 of the largest publishers in the world supporting them… poor Kindle. Sorry Amazon. (taps playing in the background)
they have iWork running on the thing too! pretty amazing. iWork is apple’s version of office, a little simplified but very similar and easier to use. Spread sheets, presentations, etc..
