The next best thing from Apple?
As publishers and potentially consumers swarm to the new Apple iPad, I, (and many other designers) will by default become an iBook designer.
What does this mean you might ask?
I couldn't say it better than Henry Sene Yee said it on Twitter, "So far, all I'm doing is, save cover file as PDF."
And there it will be in full color HD on the iPad. Embossing and new book smell still not included.

On a side note... Seriously, Apple? iPad? Were there no women on the naming/marketing team?
