Matt MacInnis And Inkling Are Reinventing Textbooks For Tablets Inkling, a digital textbook company started by ex-Apple education exec Matt MacInnis, wants to make textbooks more like computers. MacInnis told HuffPost that e-textbooks should be specially converted for digital consumption. They should be more, he said, "than just flat scans of the original material" -- a not-so-subtle dig at Inkling’s main competitor, digital textbook seller Kno. What makes Inkling’s textbooks better, MacInnis said with a bit of braggadocio, is that they "change the way information is consumed." "There’s a generation that's grown accustomed to collaboration, searchability, and accessibility," MacInnis said.

How to self-publish an ebook A while back I wrote a column titled "Self-publishing: 25 things you need to know," which was mostly about how to create and sell your own paper book. After folks asked me to do something similar for e-books, I created this article, which has now been updated a few times. I begin with one caveat: The whole e-book market is rapidly evolving, and a lot of self-publishing companies are offering e-book deals bundled into their print book publishing packages, which makes them harder to break out and evaluate. It's all quite complicated, and in an effort to sort through the confusion, I've decided to offer a few basic tips and present what I think are some of the best options out there for creating an e-book quickly and easily. As things change -- and they will -- I'll do my best to keep this column up to date.

Rapid Growth Ahead for Mobile Game Ad Spending Hit games offered free with ad support, and the rise of platforms like the iAd, are helping boost spending on mobile game advertisements around the world as mobile becomes a key channel for casual gaming. According to Juniper Research, marketers spent $87 million worldwide advertising on mobile games last year. By 2015, the amount will be 10 times greater, at nearly $900 million. Ads make up only a small portion of total mobile gaming revenues; end-user revenues from paid downloads account for the bulk of dollars in the market. Juniper expects that ad spending will grow more quickly than revenues from users, but that in 2015 user payments will still total 10 times the amount of mobile game ad spending. eMarketer projects similar shifts in the US mobile gaming market, with ad spending rising from $55.5 million in 2010 to $185.9 million in 2014, when it will make up a larger proportion of total mobile gaming revenues—but still be dwarfed by paid revenues.

We readers need the light before we get the shade.
