Apple and Education: Can Apple revolutionize textbooks?

But all that may be changing, as Apple announced its entry into the market with the new, free iBooks 2. In its first three days, the app delivered more than 350,000 copies of e-textbooks to users. Will Apple's golden touch tip the scales in favor of e-textbooks?
