What's Going to Happen at Apple's Special Event Next Thursday?

By Jesus Diaz on at

Next Thursday's Apple event in New York is going to feature something related to education. But it's not a special tablet for students or any other kind of hardware, the New York Times reports. So what is it?

The January 19 event at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is related to digital textbooks: Apple may announce digital textbooks written by "prominent textbook writers." The rumour echoes Steve Jobs' thoughts on the matter published in his biography, in which he discussed how he wanted to "transform" that market like he did for music or phones.

I'm excited to see what they would unveil, because this may be the realisation of Jobs's last vision. [NY Times]
