First music, now books.

Recently saw that story on the news, the minute the books were printed they were out of date. Just a matter of time...
On a side note, I don't subscribe to the actual paper magazines any more, I get them on my IPad. They can be read just as easily and the links in the stories go right to the source. Zoom in zoom out etc... many advantages, you don't have to lug 50 pounds of old magazines to the recycle bin.

I saw this when I broke this morning.. I'm writing a thesis driven paper on the demise of the paper print right now and this will be a great addition to support my argument.

When you look at their website, you will see that it won't last too long, IMO, as a viable alternative. Why would anyone go there specifically to search for information?

Much like electricity caused the demise of candles, and cars were the demise of buggy whips.

Someone somewhere will find a better, cheaper way to do things.
