Think about the future of text books, where a good one can be purchased online for the price of an app, say $5 per studentI am sure the publishers are pushing for this big time. That way they will cut their costs, and they will be able to sell the apps/ebooks again and again every year. I have seen a few exceptions but for most of the books I use that have electronic versions available, the cost of the ebook is not much less than the cost of the paper book and often the publisher is only selling a license to use the book for only a few months for the semester. They are a horrible deal. There are other nasty/deceitful things that I have seen publishers do but I will leave them for now since they are not on topic of this thread.
