Do we want textbooks to live in Apple’s walled garden?

GigaOM: "Apple’s launch of a new suite of textbook-related services for the iPad is being widely celebrated, and with good reason. The ability to have beautiful, interactive and easy to use e-books on the tablet makes a huge amount of sense — as startups like Inkling have been arguing for a while — and Apple’s new book-authoring software could open up publishing to a much broader market. But as usual, all of this great design requires a major tradeoff: namely, that schools and publishers agree to be locked inside Apple’s walled-garden ecosystem. That might be fine for music and movies and games like Angry Birds, but is that really appropriate for educational material?"

Why not? At least there will be some regulation on the quality of the Ebooks. Right now some are good, and some are a scrambled mess with no features. I would love to be able to buy books on the iPad, not only should they be cheaper, but apple usually does a good job emulating the feel of a physical book better than anyone else.
