California to Swap School Textbooks for Ebooks

This is fantastic news! Finally, a government in North America is moving into the 21st century!

Beginning in August 2010 high school students in California will be using online math and science texts, rather than their hardcover versions. In addition, students will be provided with e-readers. Some of these devices can store as many as 1,000 books.

The e-reader on my wish-list? The Cybook Gen3, pictured above.
