On Ars Technica:
“At a press event at the New York Public Library, Sony announced that its Reader hardware will soon be able to read digital books “borrowed” from local libraries, with a 21-day expiration date. By the holidays, the Reader lineup will be joined by a 3G-enabled wireless reader with a seven-inch screen.”
“Notes can be exported back to the desktop software with an image of the text they were associated with, so even if the underlying library book expires, the effort isn’t lost; maybe Sony didn’t want to be targeted with a class action lawsuit, such as the one that Amazon was hit with.”
Could this be a good platform for digital course reserves?
