Building on the very central subject of the education event in NYC this week in the iPad, Apple spoke of the second generation of iBooks, that being iBooks 2.

Apple will not, if my mind is cranking out right and telling me the right answers, be revealing a new device, but a new environment where students and colleges can connect to writers in a way that's been possible but not entirely realistic up until now.
