Apple Gets Serious About Podcasts | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
One of the shortcomings with podcasts is that they are time-intensive to produce; they take as long or longer to make as to listen to. (Another shortcoming is that podcasts are light on detail as compared to text, but that is another story).

Free eBooks Have Arrived at Nook Press

Free eBooks Have Arrived at Nook Press | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
The intern who has been left in charge of B&N's ebook platform (after many functions were outsourced) added a new feature this week. A reader has tipped me to the news that ebooks uploaded through Nook Press can now be given away for free. All a publisher has to do is set the price to zero and then update their listing. That update could take anywhere from minutes to days to go like on the B&N website, but once it is the ebook will be free. B&N broke the news this week in an email to publishers, which you will find at the end of this post. Given that the Nook Store now accounts for only a tiny fraction of ebook sales, this won't prove very useful, but it is still a feature which Amazon does not offer. Thanks, Karen, for the tip! O O O Dear Publisher, Free eBooks have arrived at NOOK Press! Now, publishers have the opportunity to set the price of any NOOK Press eBook to FREE. We understand the importance of this feature and are excited to provide our publishers with this great promotional tool. To set an eBook to FREE, simply log in to the NOOK [...]
