How iBooks Author Is Quietly Winning the Innovation Game
Before Steve Jobs passed away, he oversaw the creation of iBooks Author, a technology he hoped would "digitally destroy" the educational textbook market.
This software would make it easier than ever before to publish a digital book. And by including multimedia, such as high-resolution photography, audio, and video, it would make it easier than ever before to publish a next-generation digital book. And, in true Steve Jobs fashion, iBooks Author included something profoundly forward-thinking: HTML5 support. Any author could import HTML5 code to add interactivity like never before to these digital books.
