Comics numériques : un succès dû aux tablettes ?

Comics numériques : un succès dû aux tablettes ? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

L'écran des tablettes serait parfait pour lire des comics. La lecture de comics en version numérique se développe de plus en plus aux États-Unis. Selon Milton Griepp, un analyste, même s'il est difficile d'avoir des chiffres exacts les ventes de comics numériques ont plus que doublé entre l'été 2010 et l'été 2011.

Stross: publishers' insistence on DRM "hands Amazon a stick with which to beat them"

Stross: publishers' insistence on DRM "hands Amazon a stick with which to beat them" | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

"As ebook sales mushroom, the Big Six's insistence on DRM has proven to be a hideous mistake. Rather than reducing piracy[*], it has locked customers in Amazon's walled garden, which in turn increases Amazon's leverage over publishers."

Audio Books vs. Book Books: Which Does the Brain Prefer?

Audio Books vs. Book Books: Which Does the Brain Prefer? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Certainly being read to has a venerable history. At one time, all writing was meant to be read aloud, since few people could read.
