it could be a simple mistake of using the wrong word, because who is perfect in using English. but the bolded area is the part where im not trustworthy.

besides i wouldnt put it past GW to say that and actually make you buy the book again.

Yeah well, they are trying to sell the things right now so they for damn sure aren't going to say, "Yeah we don't plan on supporting it at all."

Even the smallest amount of support will allow them to say, "See we supported it! We didn't lie!"

The reason you have to delete is that iBooks are a packaged product - meaning that there isn't a way to do an incremental update. So if the book is updated, you technically delete then redownload the book. This is a limitation of Apples iBook system - not corporate conspiracy from GW to get you to repurchase a book. As someone who uses iBooks quite a bit, I've not had an issue with this process.

To add a bit more - this process is identical to how apps work in the iTunes app store. If you have an iPhone or iPad and have been using the app store (and getting upgrades for your apps - which are deleted and redownloaded also) then this is nothing new.

I wish they did it similar to the Marvel Comics, where you get a digital code where you can then get a digital version of the book for free. I think that would be awesome.
