David Carr, writing for the NYT:
The Justice Department finally took aim at the monopolistic
monolith that threatened to dominate the book industry. So
imagine the shock when the bullet aimed at threats to
competition went whizzing by Amazon â€” which not long ago had a
90 percent stranglehold on e-books â€” and instead, struck five
of the six biggest publishers and Apple, a minor player in the
realm of books.

Good idea, but is inventing an element the right approach?
My reason to bring this up is that Iâ€™m very interested by how TypeButter accomplishes its kerning: it inserts
kernelements with inline
styleattributes that bear
kernelements. No, you didnâ€™t miss an HTML5 news bite; there is no
kernelement, nor am I aware of a plan for one. TypeButter basically invents a specific-purpose element.
The April, 1935 issue of Everyday Science and Mechanics included this nifty invention which was to be the next logical step in the world of publishing. Basically a microfilm reader mounted on a large pole, the media device was supposed to let you sit back in your favorite chair while reading your latest tome of choice.
