I'd like to thank this week's sponsor: O'Reilly on Inkling. O'Reilly makes some of my favorite technical books around and now Inkling is making them better. This is some impressive technology and a natural fit for digital books. You kind of have to see it to believe it.
For years, those who’ve wanted to teach themselves programming have been caught between the trusted content found in books and the ease of use with online materials. Now, O’Reilly Media and Inkling have teamed up to reimagine the world’s most trusted technological resources for iPad, iPhone, and the web.
From embedded coding sandboxes to notes with web links, syntax highlighting, and more, books in the Animal series, Missing Manual series, and others are amplified with Inkling-only features not found in any other e-book version. Copy-and-paste bits of code as you go on your laptop, or drill down into the logic behind the syntax when reading on your iPad or iPhone.
