For education.


Apple has announced a press event on Jan 19th in New York City that, from what we can judge, is going to be all about education.

The press invite, posted above, says “Join us for an education announcement in the Big Apple”, hinting at the possibilities of venturing into the textbook industry.

I think this would be a great move if Apple can somehow coax schools and universities to shift to the tablet-way of carrying out studies. It would negate students to haul around textbooks double their weight, and would only increase focus and productivity with the possibilities of interactive elements fitted into the study material.

Now that I think of it, where was Apple when I was in school?
