BoingBoing.com has leaked an awesome posting with lots of pictures detailing that Marvel has, and will Launch an IPad app for reading comics. I am very excited about this as I have been saying for awhile that the Ipad seems to be an excellent reading device. Just recently a College has committed to giving every student an Ipad with their text books available for download. its a very interesting concept.
Speaking of books, I was reading a Time.com Article on the review of the Ipad and it made references to Douglas Adams and his Wonderful “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” novels.I am a huge Fan of Douglas Adams work (R.I.P. Douglas) and I miss his writing style a lot.
It suddenly struck me as I was reading the article that this really IS the closest we have come to an actual hand-held “Guide”. and as the writer of the article pointed out. the Sad Truth is that Douglas is not here to witness it.
That all being said, BoingBoing.com’s Marvel Posting can be read here in its entirety.
The very cool Thing about the Boingboing.com article is they even took the time to record video of someone ( presumably Xeni Jardin ) using the actual app and showing off the features.
Man, does it look cool!
So, not only did they make the IPad functional they made it Marvel (ous) too. 😉
