Gizmorama: WHAT'S NEXT WITH E-BOOKS
Up until now, most people have dealt with the electronic wonders as fiction or non-fiction texts. But there's been little done with technical or how-to books. That's where we're likely to see some growth.
When the tablet PC becomes a bit more rugged and goes to the shop, tons of DIY books could be converted to e-books and offer the user an unprecedented richness of features.
What kind of features? Let's say you need an e-book on cabinet-making. You could find one that includes illustrations of the various tools along with links to the manufactures. The powerful graphics functions would enable you to zoom in or out on a particular project and it would contain an extensive library of pictures to enhance the verbiage.
In traditional print, each color picture produced adds a great deal to the cost of production. Not so with e-books.
