Did you know… about Audible.com?

22 07 2010

This is a great innovation that emerged under the Amazon umbrella. Audible provides audio versions of books. You can subscribe to the service or buy audio books in the same way that you might buy a normal book from Amazon. This is a web service, so… you download the book immediately. I have loaded books onto my iPod Touch and then listened to them at the airport or on the plane. I also found this a useful way to force myself to work through books that I need to read but find less interesting – stick on the earphones and read the hardcopy book at the same time.

The only downside about Audible, is that their range of Innovation audio books is still very limited. Needless to say I wrote to them but had no response!

Please comment on this innovation and rate it out of ten. If you encounter really amazingly good (or bad) innovations, do let us know.
