Apple et cinq éditeurs dont Hachette Livre dans le collimateur de Bruxelles Bruxelles soupçonne l'existence d'un cartel du livre numérique. La Commission européenne a annoncé ce mardi avoir ouvert une procédure sur un éventuel cartel du marché du livre numérique en Europe. Le géant Apple, fabricant de l'iPad, et cinq éditeurs internationaux, Hachette Livre (filiale de Lagardère et numéro un français), Harper Collins (News Corp., Etats-Unis), Simon & Schuster (CBS Corp., Etats-Unis), Penguin (Pearson Group, Royaume-Uni) et Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck (qui détient notamment Macmillan, Allemagne) sont donc soupçonnés de pratiques anticoncurrentielles par les autorités européennes. Pratiques anticoncurrentielles ?

Dans son édition du 10 septembre, The Economist a lâché une bombe dont la déflagration a été ressentie de part et d'autre de l'Atlantique. Quel est ce retentissant scoop repris par plusieurs médias et pas mal de blogs anglo-saxons ? Le fabricant et concepteur de meubles Ikea s'apprêterait, d'après le respecté hebdomadaire économique, à remplacer sa célèbre bibliothèque Billy dont la profondeur s'inscrit à 11 pouces (28 centimètres selon le catalogue français du groupe suédois), par une Billy plus profonde et donc à-même d'accueillir des "coffee-table books", de "beaux livres" illustrés, en somme. Le "ebook" fait un carton outre-Atlantique Pourquoi le groupe suédois allait-il substituer sa Billy d'origine, si populaire, par une Billy, plus grosse, visant à accueillir sur ses étagères toutes sortes de livres, "sauf ceux qui sont faits pour être lus" ? A cause des tablettes numériques pardi et de l'énorme succès des livres électroniques outre-Atlantique ! L'e-book menace-t-il la populaire bibliothèque Billy d'Ikea?

So many slighting remarks have been made of late on the use of teaching grammar as compared with teaching science, that it is plain the fact has been lost sight of that grammar is itself a science. The object we have, or should have, in teaching science, is not to fill a child's mind with a vast number of facts that may or may not prove useful to him hereafter, but to draw out and exercise his powers of observation, and to show him how to make use of what he observes.... And here the teacher of grammar has a great advantage over the teacher of other sciences, in that the facts he has to call attention to lie ready at hand for every pupil to observe without the use of apparatus of any kind while the use of them also lies within the personal experience of every one.—Dr Richard Morris. The proper study of a language is an intellectual discipline of the highest order. eBook: "An English Grammar" by Baskervill, William Malone
