    Wired posts a last minute story that claims Apple's focus on Wednesday's event will be on "reinventing content, not tablets".

    Apple’s goal is to offer a new platform for content creators to reinvent books, magazines and online content — in addition to offering a new avenue for content producers to make money. That platform will likely be far broader than just a tablet device, and will extend to every device or computer that iTunes touches.

    Apple has been aggressively trying to sign on book publishers, and a report from the Wall Street Journal indicates that Apple taking Amazon head on in its negotiations with book publishers. Apple is reportedly looking to set hardcover best sellers at $12.99 and $14.99, above Amazon's current $9.99 pricing. Apple is looking to allow publishers to set their own prices for books, shifting some of the power back to the publishers.

    Yeah i've heard the same thing about apple and the book publishers. It was when i was reading about the google debacle in europe with their new scanning of books machines. The tablet will make an excellent e-book reader.
