Jobs delivers first batch of 23,000 iBooks

Apple CEO Steve Jobs attended the Henrico County, Virginia school convocation on Friday, according to a report in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Jobs gave a speech to teachers, students and administrators at the Landmark Theatre, where he also delivered the first batch of 23,000 iBooks the school district there has leased from Apple. In his address, Jobs said he came to underscore the district's decision, and that he "wants every other district in this country to copy it." Henrico Schools Superintendent Mark Edwards also indicated in the report that the county is already considering expanding the iBook lease to include elementary students.
