Apple's iPad -- a broken link? (Adobe Flash Platform Blog) - http://blogs.adobe.com/flashpl...
It looks like Apple is continuing to impose restrictions on their devices that limit both content publishers and consumers. Unlike many other ebook readers using the ePub file format, consumers will not be able to access ePub content with Apple's DRM technology on devices made by other manufacturers. And without Flash support, iPad users will not be able to access the full range of web content, including over 70% of games and 75% of video on the web. - Ian Clark

Without numbers, it's impossible to determine whether or not the Kindle is firing up bookworms - did its record-breaking day involve hundreds, thousands, millions of book sales? - Ian Clark

Our advice documents cover all aspects of creating and using digital media resources. To find an advice document you can either go into the different media section (Still images, Moving images, Audio) or for issues relating to all media, use the Cross-media section. Within those sections, you can also browse by digital lifecycle stage (Managing a project, Digitising analogue media, Creating new digital media, Managing your digital resources or Finding and using digital media). - Ian Clark

Peter Suber, SPARC Open Access Newsletter, 1/2/09 - http://www.earlham.edu/%7Epete...
A staggering amount of energy was poured into implementing open access (OA) in 2008. This is an attempt to show its depth and breadth, while admitting that the full story can't be captured in one article. There's a lot of detail here, but it's selective and I've tried to present just the highlights of 2008 in nine categories, with a 10th section for highlights of the highlights. To keep it within bounds, I've omitted some sections I've formerly included, such as open education, OA for public-sector information (PSI), and the universe of wikis. As always, apologies to the many projects I couldn't include. - Ian Clark

Loughborough University Institutional Repository: A Librarian's guide to institutional repositories - https://dspace.lboro.ac.uk/dspace-...
Institutional repositories (IRs) are a recent feature of the UK academic landscape. You may already have one at your workplace (in which case you might be better to skip to the next article); you will probably have heard the term being bandied about by your colleagues; you might even have come across one when trawling the web. But what is an IR? Should your institution have one? And if so, how would you go about creating it? These are some of the questions we hope to address in this short article. - Ian Clark

Decrease in High School Graduates Will Increase College Admission Rates - The Tech - http://tech.mit.edu/V128...
Projections show that by next year or the year after, the annual number of high school graduates in the United States will peak at about 2.9 million after a 15-year climb. The number is then expected to decline until about 2015. Most universities expect this to translate into fewer applications and less selectivity, with most students probably finding it easier to get into college. - Ian Clark

Digital Britain report - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1...

With it the government wanted to draw up an action plan to help Britain make the most of new media. The final version was released on 16 June and the wide-ranging report tackles everything from broadband speeds to internet regulation and public service broadcasting. - Ian Clark

CRITICAL APPRAISAL SKILLS PROGRAMME - http://www.pdptoolkit.co.uk/Files...
This assessment tool has been developed for those unfamiliar with qualitative research and their theoretical perspectives. This tool presents a number of questions that deal very broadly with some of the principles or assumptions that characterise qualitative research. It is not a definitive guide and extensive further reading is recommended. - Ian Clark
