Apple, in its typical cryptic way, announced Wednesday that it was holding a press event next week on "education." It's anyone's guess what Apple will be announcing at the event scheduled for Jan. 19 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. But if a recent report is accurate, Apple will be pulling the wraps off a new initiative into digital textbooks. If that's the case, Apple's choosing a good time to focus on that market, according to Rob Enderle, president and principal analyst with the Enderle Group.

I love my iPad, IMHO, ebooks are not that great for school, I prefer a physical book... renting textbooks saves money on my textbooks every semester.
