What's Ahead

I’ve written about this before, but it’s time to do it again. With the exponential rush of technology, especially as it relates to acquiring information from above, I see the demise of all hard copy magazines and newspapers within a year, two at the most. We’re right on the cusp of being able to tap into those beams from earth to satellites to us without any hard lines. Already, there is something called Slingbox that allows us to watch our own television, both live as well as dvr-saved, on a cell phone, i-Phone, i-Pod, i-Pad, notebook, laptop, computer, and probably soon even on e-readers. If we’re that close to wireless communication, then why not newspapers and magazines sent via the same means? And the next generation of e-readers will probably be able to download any books, new or old, directly to us, which will then lead to the end of hard copy books. As for how we’ll pay for all this, I don’t know. But I’m sure something will be worked out. A little scary, but still interesting.
