More Kindle on the Fire

Just a quick post or update pertaining to the E-Book market heating up. Kindle is coming out with a new larger screen, and universities are lining up. This is real folks, Amazon is experiencing success and fully expects a profitable competition with Apple. Not only will there be great new E-Book devices we will have an assortment of sizes and flavors to choose from. My administration has not taken my warnings serious yet about how the textbook business will be dramatically different when we start the 2010/11 year. This coming year we figure it all out.

OK – see some of you at Educause in Indy tomorrow.
