Publishers to Build eTextbooks for iPad

Despite being incredibly cool, Apple’s iPad is having trouble attracting consumers.  That being said, the iPad could prove practical to students in one very important way- bringing textbooks and other class materials to your fingertips in a cool, easy manner.  Major textbook publishers (McGraw-Hill, Kaplan, etc.) have already signed on to begin developing versions of their products for the iPad as well as looking for new ways to adapt textbooks to this new interface.  One potential beneficial result of this might be a drop in the astronomical price of textbooks, although if we had to guess, the publishers will attempt to do anything in their power to stop that (insert evil laugh here).
