Aaaannnnd - as soon as the man has this in the hands of every kid and has knocked print to the floor then kicked it in the face a few times the price of digital texbooks will increase, whether it be slowly or abruptly, it will equal out. Then we can ensure those pesky children using up OUR tax dollars in low-income areas stay where they belong: out of school when they can't even afford a Kindle!

I would have thought that'd be a great idea, when i went to school, my bag often weighed a full stone because of all of the textbooks i had to carry

I think that it will take a long time in the sciences for books to be replaced. I know most courses in engineering are still taught with blackboards and chalk. I have a few students using E books as the text book. They have a harder time following what I am doing on the board because they can't jump back and forth between pages that are in different parts of the book. They also have an issue when I point out a simplification in the method the book missed or worse an error in the book. The ones with hard copies just jot it down and keep going.

A few things come to mind. No one ever stole ALL my text books while I was at a McDonalds. And books don't get viruses and crash, it seems a little all eggs in one basket to me.
