In today’s online issue of Computerworld, Mike Elgan makes a convincing argument for the break-through of the e-book. What will propel the so far failing e-book into a strong market position, he believes, is Amazon’s awaited release of the Kindle platform on mobiles. Elgan’s six arguments, especially that of the deepening recession and the mobile habits of youngsters, are compelling. “By this time next year, e-books will be totally mainstream”, Elgan concludes. So when will we see the first academic medical history e-book on iPhone? My bet is February 2012.
