By that logic, 6 years ago you would have stated that Apple's position on phones was "Buy a Nokia if you want a good phone."
But they obviously had something better in the works.
Even if SJ himself told you that there was no OSX iBooks app on the way, it would mean absolutely nothing... in fact, it might even lead one to believe there WAS one on the way.
I have a hard time believing that you know any more than anyone else what "Apple's position" is on ANYthing.
While the iPad is certainly a BETTER way to read "books"... there are time's when I'd like to be able to access them from the desktop as well. I would dare to say that when electronic readers are as ubiquitous as iPods, you'll see DRM for books go away like it did for music.
