This Is How App-Like An Ebook Can Be In iBooks Using ePUB3 [Video] | Cult of Mac | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it
The most impressive ebooks on the iPad aren’t ebooks at all, but dedicated iOS apps. With the power of HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and ePUB3, though, there’s no reason that has to be the case at all: you can put together a truly interactive, animated ebook right within iBooks.

Oblong Has Built The Future Of Computing. I’ve Seen It. Used It. It’s Beautiful.

Oblong Has Built The Future Of Computing. I’ve Seen It. Used It. It’s Beautiful. | Learning with Mobile Devices | Scoop.it
Over the past several years, I’ve followed pretty much every new thing in the technology space, and written about many of them. But it’s hard not to get cynical when so much of what’s out there is not only not revolutionary, it’s often not even evolutionary. Instead, much of what I see is simply derivative and quite frankly, boring. But every once in a while something crops up that is truly game-changing. And it restores my faith in technology. That’s the best way to describe what I saw when I met with Oblong Industries this week.

How To Print From Your iPad or iPhone

Unlike printing on the Mac or PC, AirPrint (the iOS-based printing system) is still not yet a fully realized solution. Fortunately, workarounds are available.
