The new iBooks

Posted by Yanthor on 2005-03-29 21:30:12

World-readable

I recently saw a brand new iBook. It was almost the fastest they are currently making and had lots of RAM. I did drool. It was purchased by the fiance of a coworker. She has quit her job as a book editor to be a free-lance book editor and is now using that iBook for all of her work.

Having rejected DOS, we're paranoid about anything that isn't
"user-friendly," that requires some adjustment on our part and a
commitment to meet the technology halfway. It's as if Henry Ford rigged
a bridle and set of leather reins to his Model T instead of a steering
wheel and clutch, and to this day we were still driving our cars the way
a 19th century groomsman would handle a horse and buggy.
