Ipad Textbooks

In a move that is set to possibly further annihilate the Kindle and other e-books, the Ipad is looking for an edge in the highly profitable text-book market. Just recently, Seton Hill University, which is a Catholic University in Pennsylvania, announced that every student at their university would be given an Ipad.

As the NYT pointed out, the IPads, which the university hopes students will use to download textbooks from the I-Bookstore, are not cheap. Each student will be required to pay a $500 fee for “digital costs” per semester.
