Don't I wish...

But seriously, folks, Yes, e-texts should be available to everyone... especially those kids who I see laboring under the weight of backpacks half their size. Of course, the textbook publishers are going to scream at the radically-altered market they'll have to endure, and we'll likely see established publishers going belly-up, and upstart publishers trying to fill their shoes. It'll be quite the mashup.

(Sound familiar?)

Personally, I wish McNealy luck. I just wish he hadn't suggested that there have been no mathematical breakthroughs since Newton...
