Apple Tablet for education

Interesting post on the new Apple Tablet details that have leaked so far. Apple was one of the largest disruptive innovations to hit computing and education. It looks like they are going to disrupt even more if you believe the details so far:
  • Apple wants to "reshape businesses like textbooks, newspapers and television much the way his iPod revamped the music
  • Apple hired a former textbook publishing executive who is responsible for "driving global strategy and revenue for the education online store for students

We know what they did to music and I truly believe that they can do the same thing for text books and education. This could be an amazing year for education technology!
