Government To Review Apple’s iBookstore Investment

The Governor-in-Council has ordered an Investment Canada Act section 15 review of Apple Canada’s iBookstore. The review of the cultural investment may help explain the delay in the full launch of Apple online bookstore for the iPad.

    I think the URL is malformed.

  2. What about ACTA scrutiny?
    And what scrutiny is there over ACTA to ensure it does not hinder Canadian culture? Perhaps the government should talk to some artists and Canadian citizens!

  3. Beware!!
    And we wonder why services like Pandora got shut down. I wonder if the Canadian Netflix launch is going to get the same treatment? Can’t allow Canadians to stream all those American movies and TV shows Willy nilly now can we?

    We live in a digital wasteland, run by politicians who would probably have a problem programming a VCR.

  4. Online investing
    Now what is this can any body give me idea.

  5. i love my iPad for reading. And i prefer iBoos over the Kindle app. But there’s still the issue, that no actual books are available. It’s even worse outside the US. Here the iBookstore has only the Gutenberg books, and that’s it. It’s a shame, because I would have bought quite a couple of books already, if they were available!
    PS: I have some other good APPS from aneesoft want to recommend. Maybe someone will like it.
