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.

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
