iTunes PDF Subscriptions…eBooks

About a year ago we started sending MAKE sample PDFs through iTunes, we were hoping it would catch on and eventually become another way to distribute eBooks – and now there are a couple more, so maybe it will start to happen — Wikinews print edition and Rick Steve’s audio tours – [via] Link.

I just put a sample section of our new book The Makers in the iTunes (RSS) feed. Click here to subscribe in iTunes and download the PDF. Or just grab it. It should be there once iTunes checks our feed…

    Interesting idea. I can’t help but think that Ebooks on an Ipod or similiar is the way forward fro small scale and private publishing.

    Interesting? I wouldn’t support Apple and their craptacular iTunes if my life depended on it. They can take their manipulative and non user-friendly copyright enforcement and shove it. Apple….bah!
