Do paper books really win on specs?

…and are “specs” really the right way to measure “winning”?

Dieter Bohn of The Verge makes some pretty good points here, but I tend to agree more with results, as documented at AppleInsider.

If you haven’t seen the introduction of iBooks 2, iBooks Author, and iTunes U at Apple’s event I strongly suggest you do. It’s a revelation.

This is the future.

Will it take a while for schools, and universities to come around? Sure. But this is so much better than what we have today, that it’s inevitable. Students will engage in what they need to learn to be prepared for the real life, and that’s going to make all the difference. If you want to learn, learning itself becomes fun. This is what every good educator strives for.

Apple reinvented the textbook…and is possibly saving millions and millions of trees in the process.
