With Apple iPad and Maxis WiFi Modem, I’m able to download the latest copy of some local newspaper as well as popular magazines, such as National Geographic, then read it whenever and wherever I’m free. Therefore, I’m buying less newspaper and magazine now. By having all digital copies of newspaper, magazine and even books downloaded into the iPad, hopefully the scene below will not be seen again. :)
Books, magazines, novels, newspapers.
Piles of books, magazines, novels and newspapers on a messy table at my friend’s house.

  6. Used to work in print media. It's definitely on the way out. I saw the writing on the wall and got out before the company started laying off.

  12. I don't think I could ever go digital as far as books and newspapers go. I love the smell of the pages and holding the physical copy in my hand.

  22. I'd rather have a book instead. Makes you look much more sophisticated. But that's just me.

  25. Don't you need to pay too for your e-books and newspaper on your iPad? Anyway I love the way that paper feels when i touch it. Watching in a screen the whole day long even if I read the newspaper is uncomfortable for me.
