New software on Macs

Raleigh, NC-based Vital Source Technologies has signed a deal with Apple that could put its educational software and content on more than a third of computers sold to U.S. schools, according to the NewsObserver.com. The company's collection of 2,000 works from Western civilization will be along withan application that lets students electronically take notes and highlight material. The report says that Vital Source's agreement with Apple is "potentially three times larger than a similar agreement reached with IBM in March", which placed education software on all of IBM's machines headed for the education markets. The deals are "worth millions" as they generate royalty payments on a per machine basis.
