Apple making special "education announcement" next week Apple has invited the media to a special "education announcement" in New York for next week, January 19th, although the contents of the event remain unknown, in true Apple fashion.
The invite, which features a NY skyline, says "Join us for an educational event in the Big Apple." The event will take place at 10 a.m. at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on the upper east side.

Although completely unconfirmed, the general Internet consensus is that Apple will announce their entry into the e-textbook business. In his biography, Steve Jobs spoke about a subscription textbook-on-iPad plan.

Of course, Apple could be going a whole different way with it. We will update you after the event.

It'll be elitist & overpriced and Apple will bully everyone into coughing up 30% of their gross for riding the coat tails. Apple has to my knowledge never done anything for the good of mankind without having it paid for.
