    You guys ever thought of publishing a book? a Behind the scenes edition. What Gary and Ex Really think about their users. Rated 18+ lol j/k

  • Awesome! I loaded a bunch of my ebooks on both the iPhone and iPad versions. Reading “Self Improvement for Smart People” right now, but recently finished “Confessions of a Public Speaker” and “22 Immutable Laws of Branding”

  • I don't suppose I'll be able to run iBooks on my first gen iPod Touch now? They made it 4.0 only for some reason, and first generation devices don't get 4.0.

    You know, I find your comment very interesting.

    Gary and I were at a meeting the other day and were discussing JUST that!

  • iBooks has a fair range of books now. Most of the major publishers are on it now. Not as much content, but there are other options.

  • I've been reading Sherlock Holmes from Project Gutenberg and from ebooks downloaded from other sources. Classics!

    Also I wouldn't mind the iBookstore being accessible via iTunes
