iBooks now supports PDF files

With the success of the iPad, Apple has announced some updates for its iBook app at WWDC. The changes are fairly practIcal and useful ones. Things that make life just a tad easier with books.

Like the ability to make notes in your book, there’s a new bookmark ribbon, a page to display your notes and bookmarks, and yes, PDF support. Those additions should help steer even more people to the iPad who are looking for an eBook reader, but are undecided.

Apple iPad eBook app is called iBooks

Looks like the Kindle now has a worthy arch-enemy. Apple’s iPad has an ebook store called “iBooks”. (What else?) The publishers include all of the big players: Penguin, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Hachette.

Apparently the books won’t be cheap, which means publishers can stay in business longer. You can probably expect price wars very soon. The example book is a hefty $15. Interestingly, Apple is using ePub, which means books from other stores may work as well.
