E-book reality check

November 9, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Remember how e-book apps outstripped games on the iPhone app store? And all the attendant excitement about the new world order, the death of books, and what it all meant?

Apparently, it meant approximately diddly-squat:

Publishers are hungry for as much data as they can get on how the written word is consumed online and on mobile devices. (Or they better be.) Unfortunately, honey traps abound which lead to specious logic and flawed conclusions. Take the latest stats … the quantity of book apps does nothing more than glut the app store. Games continue to outsell and outrank books on almost every metric.
