Is Apple Set to "Digitally Destroy" Textbooks This Thursday?

By Andrew Tarantola on at

Ahead of Thursday's NYC education event, Ars Technica reports via a leak source that Apple plans to announce a simpler way for authors to create and publish ebooks as well as iBook's adoption of the ePub3 standard.

The WSJ also names publisher McGraw-Hill as a project partner. All these developments suggest Apple's gearing up to bring textbooks to the iPad, but we'll have to wait until Thursday to see. [Electronista]
