Commentary by Stephen Downes

On the one hand, it's nice that iTunes is making free books available. On the other hand, free books were already available, and Apple has simply placed them behind a login window. All this is fine, so long as Apple continues to allow access to Gutenberg. The strategy is pretty clear, though - attract people to iTunes for the free books, and they'll stay to purchase the commercial books.
