Google Editions - Bookstore in a Cloud

Most likely launching in July, Chris Palma, Google’s manager for strategic-partner development, presented Google Editions during a panel at publisher Random House.

From the Library Journal:

"Palma described web-based cloud computing as a third major step in computing, after the mainframe/PC and the web. ‘Our market, and potential market, is not the people who’ve bought Kindles or iPads,’ Palma said, but rather the 1.8 billion people who access the Internet around the world."

That is an awesome idea. Really curious to see how this pans out. Books available directly - not by scanning physical books - to everyone who has access to internet around the world? Wow.
