ing digitaltextbooks on ponable devices.They


will
wantto buyotherbooksto takewiththem."

Several factors will drive the growth of the


digital book market, Madachlan predicted.
Besides the fat that millions of consumers are

buyingbooksonline already,the convenience of


the Internet means used books always willbe

available. "No book wilL ever go out of print," h


silld.

The addition of niche books that may previously not have been widely or easily available
wouldmean more contentto choosefrom, which
could in turn attract non-readers, Maclachlan
said.
"The main factor will be the standardization
af, probably, two platforms: Adobe's PDF and
Micros
oft Reader," he continued."The big thing
thatpushed online music forward was the standardization of MP3."
Unlike the music industry, the digital book
business is not plagued by piracy, so far.
Maclachlan said no one is scanning pages af
booksand magazines and placing them on the
Internet,mos tly because even the best opticalscanning technology has a five percent failure
rate. "Publishers are much more proactive about
attachingthis market than the music industry
was,"he said."They know thattraditionalbooks
are often read by multiple people anyway, so
they are looking into reative ways to monetize
the steps when e-books are passed along."

IDC said both Amazon.om and

Barnesandnoble.
com have made deals that will
fadlit
ate the marketsfordigitalbooks and ondemand printing. According to Maclachlan,
printing on demand will grow more quickly
than e-books in the near term, but will not be
as big in the long term.
"There will be an initial upsurge because
there is a backlog of unpublished manuscripts
writers want published. Print-on-demand is

almost like a demo album for (musicians]," he


said. "We see print-on-demand as bringing in
aboutUS$200 miUion by 2004.A few yearsfram
now,however,we wiU not even think of it asa

separ
ate marketfrom e-booksany more."

P O W E R F U L PER S O N A L C O M P U T E R S

I csn honestly and pmudly say my Voodoo PC is


thebestcomputer fvs everowned land as sloagtime gamer with chronic upgrade fever, I' ve
owned s few in my time.) Voodoo's attention to
detail is what surprised me the most. Everything
fiom the super-slick online ordering menu to the
way the system is packaged for shipping shows a
level of quality contml that's not easy to come by.
Take a look at tbe inside of a Voodoo PC snd
notice how the technicians carefully wrap and
tuck each and every internal cable out of the way.
This craRsmsn-like approach to assembling
systems, and the mind-boggling amount of time
they spend building each computer, blew me
away. I also loved the fact that Voodoo camas the
kind of high-end components I wanted for my
system, and that they install, test and retest
everything before the system ships. Knowiag

PERFECT 1D

you' re buying a PC that's going to work


absolutely flawlessly straight out of the box
makes for some truly welcome peace of mind.
