That sounds like some heresy.

Yes actually its quite simple.
Electronics, like all other goods, grow in value over time to correlate with inflation.
FOr example: The 1991 floppy disks now are worth what a dime maybe? $25 then for 1 book, but now we get about 1000 books for that price. It's interesting though because technological development hit it's peak in about 08. We have since slowed down the speed at which we develop better technological devices. Still we are pretty advanced now at this point. THem alien ****** don't stand a chance to the power of internet

you know he's being sarcastic right?

although you did provide some excellent analysis and examples with which to back up your contentions. Your argument was backed with evidence and figures that helped me to further develop the concepts brought about by the original thesis.10/10 good work.

Public Libraries (1425) - Capacity: thousands of books. Free.

You can torrent books. Also free.
#71 to #70 - anon (01/16/2013) [-]
Yep. Because you can carry thousands of books, or a public library, with you wherever you go right? You ******* idiot.
User avatar #76 to #71 - lindsaaay (01/16/2013) [-]
It's going to be a sad day when libraries, newspapers, and book stores go out of business because of idiots like you. Having a physical book is and always will be better than reading on an electronic screen.

Implying I said anything about not liking books
Implying I said anything about getting rid of books
Implying I said anything other than pointing out the flaw in your retarded logic.

Keep your strawman arguments for your middle school buddies. The content is obviously showing the evolution of electronic reading devices. Which exist because they are convenient. Then you trying to act superior by saying "hurr durr you forgot about libraries guise, I'm so smrt right guise?" Like that had any ******* thing to do with it in the first place. Or like you can carry 8000 ******* books with you. Or like having a tablet isn't really nice to have when you want to have a couple books in one device.

And besides a physical book and a tablet is the same ******* thing, if you want to read you'd read. Not whine like a little bitch about technology.

Ok seriously no need to be rude. All I'm saying is that libraries are more convenient and less expensive than buying a tablet or kindle. What happens when you drop your tablet by accident and it breaks? The thousands of books that you so conveniently had with you is now back to zero. When you want to read in a sunny place? A paper book never has a glare. A paper book will also never strain your eyes like an electronic screen would. Also why would you need to have thousands of books with you at a time? Is one book not sufficient enough for you in one sitting?

Look all I'm saying is that kindles and tablets can not take the place of a library. I mean I'll be the first to say that I'd much rather do research on a computer than read from a textbook, but when it comes to reading for pleasure, there is just much more satisfaction from reading a physical book than carrying a thin piece of metal. I'm trying to use the least argumentative tone as possible so I'd appreciate if you did the same. Thank you.

I used to think that but when I can carry my Kindle around and have literally hundreds of thousand-page novels with me on a screen that does a DAMN good job of emulating an actual page... I get what you're saying but as technology grows we lose jobs. We've lost blacksmiths and stables and so many other jobs in the past.
