Bill Gates on Text Books

Well – is this going to go as one of the worst or best predictions of all time?
“Within four or five years, instead of spending money on textbooks,” Mr Gates said recently about students, “they’ll spend a mere $400 or so buying that tablet device and the material they hook up to will all be on the wireless internet with animations, timelines and links to deep information. But they’ll be spending less than they would have on textbooks and have a dramatically better experience.”
Quoted, Jan. 14, 2006 in the The Age (Australia).
5 Years – I think not.
