iTunes Publisher inexplicably fails to publish an iBook. Now what? Update: There has been much back-channel discussion on this article, both from other book publishers with the same problem, and yes, from "knowledgeable sources". I'm looking into the information I was provided, will do some testing, and will write a follow-up, probably on Friday June 4. Stay tuned. Update #2: Six tips for getting Apple's iBooks to accept your ePub file Last week, I discussed a weird quirk in the Apple iBook policy, where I discovered I couldn't use my iPhone developer account to upload books to the iBook store. Both use Apple's iTunes Connect system, so it was weird that Apple explicitly disallowed developer accounts from also being book publishers.

Pushed by the Oklahoma Fit Kids Coalition, a private group made up mostly of health professionals, the bill barring the sale of soft drinks and low nutritional snack items tackles the growing problem of obesity, diabetes and other health problems among young people.

Sen. The bill provides that foods of low nutritional value cannot be sold in elementary school, except on special occasions. In high school, soft drinks and snack items could be sold, but schools must offer healthy alternative foods and provide incentives to encourage healthy food choices, such as low prices. Sen.

Rapport från Webbdagarna 2010 « inUseful Förra veckan var inUse (Max Ljungqvist, Sofia Karlsson, Malena Holmberg, Anna Lundeborg) närvarande på IDG:s konferens Webbdagarna. Överlag en bra och givande konferens med flera olika spår för olika typer av besökare: marknadsföring på nätet, sök/affiliate, sociala medier, offentlig sektor, och e-handel. Här hittar du en lista på alla talare. Vår känsla efteråt säger att: 1. 2010 är mobilt. 2009 var året för sociala medier och det märks att hypen har lagt sig något även om ämnet i sig fortfarande finns på mångas munnar. 2010 är istället mobilsajternas och -apparnas år, och företagen avsätter större delar av sina budgetar till just mobil utveckling. Folk antas surfa mer i mobilen framöver, och Apples iPad förutsägs av många slå igenom som den nya portabla surfdevicen.
