Vooks: The Worst Idea in a Loooong Time

vook: a hybrid book which intersperses videos throughout electronic text that can be read — and viewed — online. (New York Times.)

So there are these videos, see, which are actually placed into books so that you can read in between videos, see, so you can better understand what the books are about.  In case you have a hard time imagining things just from written text, see.

...er, I hope everyone knows that once upon a time, there were these films, see, which had slides of text placed into the film, see, so you could better understand what the film was about.  In case you had a hard time lip reading, see. 

They were called silent films.  I sometimes wonder what the hell the marketing department at Apple is thinking.
