Gaping hole in UK Apple iPad page where iBooks should be

Apple's shiny new iPad will be missing a key element when it comes to the UK -- the iBooks ebook reader and store

Apple's shiny new iPad will be missing a key element when it comes to the UK -- the iBooks ebook reader and store. The Register has noted that Apple's official UK launch page has gone live, and there's a great big empty space where the iBooks blurb appears on the US page.

Steve Jobs made iBooks a prominent feature of his iPad launch presentation, but international rights deals are understandably complicated and Apple only promised that iBooks would be available in the US at launch. The iPad will launch in the US next month, with it arriving in the UK in late March.

All the iPad's other features are present and correct on the UK page, and we were gratified to see 'TV programmes' spelt correctly. Check out all our iPad coverage here.

Man flies 54-propeller superdrone, almost flips it, Ep. 217

This week on Crave, we walk you through a futuristic new automated restaurant in San Francisco, get navigation directions from the sultry voice of Stephen Colbert on Waze, and fly a drone with 54 propellers that can carry a full-grown man. It's the Crave show!
