By Jeff Somogyi, dealnews Media Editor Start off the New Year right by resolving to read up on these rumors: Apple getting into the school textbook market? Of every book read for class, 30% of your education has to be given to Apple. [Edukwest] The Wii U will have eReader functionality? Though I wonder if people would really be as interested in reading books about plumbers? [GamingBlend] Apple having trouble lining up content partners for their iTV? Weird! Why wouldn't television networks be queuing up to sign with the company that successfully devalued music-as-albums, breaking them into individual, cheap tracks? It's not like TV networks offer a larger package of programs, of which only a few are worth paying money for, or anything. [USA Today] Yahoo! to buy Netflix? It's a perfect match. Yahoo! gets to offer streaming movies, and Netflix gets marketed towards an audience that — let's be real — has probably never heard of Netflix and will think that: a) it's a miraculous way to watch movies, and b) is a reasonable price. [CIO Today] Apple to allow self-published iBooks? Great, now every hack with a word processing program will think they're an author. Did I mention my short stories are available as iBooks?

He thinks that writing is more than just stringing a couple of words together, yet that's all he delivers, week after week: Words in a line that he calls "sentences."
