During Apple’s education event today in New York City, the company announced the imminent release of iBooks 2, supporting a new variety of interactive book features focused primarily on education. Promising to deliver a “new textbook experience” for the iPad and other iOS devices, the new version will support books providing enhanced graphical and interactive features such as study cards, embedded quizzes and enhanced note-taking and highlighting capabilities. iBooks 2 is now available from the App Store as a free download.

This is a great idea for textbooks, and I want to convince my wife it is too.  She has talked about running for our private school board and now I may have a platform for her.  I have wanted to buy our kids iPads for a long time and perhaps this is a reason she will accept.  I want to buy them so they can watch TV on the iPad instead of wearing out their iPhones like they are but she would rather them not watch any TV at all.  We all watch our TV out of the house now since we got our Sling Adapter from Dish Network about a year ago.  It gives us live and recorded TV anywhere and we use it a lot so when we get home we do other things besides watch TV anymore.  My wife loves that, but I still would like to get the kids iPads.
