Technology Catching up with Students

It really is crazy that it is taking so long for education to catch up with students when it comes to technology. A kindle costs less than some text books yet we (parents like me) still pay top dollar for books that rarely get used. Instead of full texts, why aren't professors buying sections of the text just like we buy only the songs we want from an album on iTunes?

It is good to see articles like this in the USAToday - but frustrating to see the pace so slow and the coverage only talking about a few schools.
