The Internet is slow

I have read the morning paper every day since I was a teenager, and I read the paper online as well. In fact, I have read online papers for almost a decade and I still get the paper delivered. Why? Because it is faster and more flexible. Especially now that the papers are in trouble and have gotten thinner. I can get local state national international news business sports funnies and obits in about 15 minutes in any room in the house standing reclining sitting. The internet can deliver me the same content but only in a few locations only sitting and it takes twice as long. You need to make the screen four times as big and as light as newsprint to really compete. This is not to say newspapers won’t become obsolescent – they might. But it won’t be because of convenience – it will be a choice. If you can call a decision determined by marketing a choice.
