Examples in context

‘Our e-publishing predictions for 2013

If you want to see the shape of books to come, cast your eyes stateside

1. E-reader sales will tail off as people buy tablets instead, meaning ebooks will increasingly have to compete with YouTube and Angry Birds HD. Basic Kindles and Nooks will soon cost the same as a hardback.
9. Libraries and publishers will fail to see eye to eye on ebook lending.’

The Observer, 30 Dec. 2012


‘Cameron and Clegg renew coalition vows with ’sense of shared purpose’

Leaders to set out range of proposals for second half of parliament, including new measures on childcare


In a joint foreword to "the coalition programme mark 2", the leaders say : "We are dealing with the deficit, rebuilding the economy, reforming welfare and education and supporting hard-working families through tough times. And on all of these key aims, our parties, after 32 months of coalition, remain steadfast and united. Of course there have been some issues on which we have not seen eye to eye, and no doubt there will be more. That is the nature of coalition. But on the things that matter most – the big structural reforms needed to secure our country’s long-term future – our resolve and sense of shared purpose have, if anything, grown over time."’
