What would you rather? Carrying a heavy backpack to school every day loaded with textbooks, or throwing all those textbooks away and letting technology take over, ebook style? I know what my choice would be. I'd opt for the textbooks. Why? Because my textbook doesn't run on batteries, is less likely to be stolen and is less likely to get damaged and be unrepairable. Seriously though, why would I want to sit and read off a screen all day long when I can sit and read from a textbook? Yeah, it may be convenient to have it all in one small place, but if you lose your ebook reader thingy, you lose ALL your textbooks and then you have to buy them again. http://www.theage.com.au/national/students-to-dump-textbooks-for-ebooks-20090815-elsu.html Is the article anyways. I just thought it would be an interesting read for everyone. Technology is going to take over no matter what, because man is lazy and always looking for the easier (lazier) way. Reminds me of a children's cartoon called 'Lazy Lucy'.
