    Why wouldn't there be? You can get eBooks in different formats. Do you think apps will be available? It sure would be nice to be able to use an app before actually buying it.

    Look for the Overdrive app and see if there is library near you that uses it on their web site.

    I think he meant he wanted to be able to check out apps from the library.

    Not going to happen this decade.

    Yes, that's what I meant. I know they're not available now, but I don't know a good reason why they wouldn't possibly be available in the near future. That could be a real good place for minor app developers to get their product known.

    The only way to have that, will be to pry it out of Steve Jobs cold dead hands.
