Coming soon? A “Garage Band” for eBooks?

I'll be all over this if it's true.

A couple years ago, around the time Adobe and WIRED demonstrated x-y scrolling in a new tablet magazine prototype, I said (in a blog post I can't find at the moment) I wanted that technology for my students. I mean, wouldn't it be fantastic if students could create their own text books from material they needed and deemed valuable. And wouldn't it be great if they could share these resources with other students.

So far, eBook creators are rather clunky. But it sounds like Apple may be about to change all that and give me the tool I've been waiting for.
