Amazon Wins $30 Million Deal to Sell E-Books in NYC Schools - Fortune

Panzer was tootling around in the Catosphere when the Panzermobile was buffeted by clapping and cheering. Our brave kitty followed all the noise to the Fortune site. There he found big news about Amazon.

$30 million is a lot of kitty treats.
According to a post by Hilary Brueck, Amazon just signed a new contract with the New York City Schools worth $30 million. Under the contract the company will be supplying ebooks to New York City school students at the beginning of the next school year. The students will not need to buy Kindles; instead the ebooks can be read on tablets and other devices. Also included in the post is a short video about Amazon's video streaming service.

Panzer says, "Hmm ... That means no more heavy backpacks for NYC students. Everything will be on a tablet."

Note: This is a medium post. Even if you watch the video, you'll only need a cup of tea and a muffin.
