In the Apple Event yesterday Apple announced a lot of new interesting features: iBooks 2, iTunes U, iBook Author and more. Above you can see a video Apple shoed at the Apples education event is underway at New York City Guggenheim Museum. In  the video you can see that textbooks on iPad go way beyond the printed page. See how they bring learning material to life with video, audio, interactivity, and more. A hands on video by Engadget can be found after the break. » The Textbook Reinvented For iPad And Hands-On Video With Apple Digital Textbooks

Gizmode posted that it’s now no longer possible to go to the Apple shop in NYC to get your first gen iPhone.
At the Apple store on NYC’s West 14th Street this morning, I caught this line, 30 people deep (my conservative estimate). I asked an employee what they were waiting for, and he told me “the iPhone.” When I incredulously said it wasn’t coming—we suppose—for another month, he said it wasn’t the 3G iPhone, but “the one that came out last June. It’s been out of stock all week.” I asked him if he thought anyone should tell these poor saps that they should hold off for a month—before their dreams are crushed—but he just said “I don’t think so.” He couldn’t actually confirm whether or not replenishments were on their way.
