Everything going digital
Everything, and I do mean everything, that is currently done on paper will most likely end up in digital.
Even things that are not covered usually by local newspapers will go digital, and allow the "unwashed masses" to report on items.
For example, where I currently live, local school sports and general outdoor "sports" items are not covered to well by the local paper and news.
An associate worked at a local paper and after leaving, and a few of the reporters at the paper got fired due to "limiting costs" he rounded up a couple of the reporters and built a website www.carsonsports.com.
Now, he is actually beating the local paper on getting sports/outdoor news out to people, and covering a LOT more then they are.
As planning for future capabilities and expansion, we have discussed the option of providing users with a "e-reader" that will allow either instant updates via wireless or via usb. The reason for this:
1. e-readers is larger then a phone.
2. e-reader is portable.
This means that the end user will not need to carry a traditional "paper", wil be able to be updated "on the fly" unlike a traditional "paper" and will offer better readability for those you do not have good vision, as well as possibly allowing video.
Everything will eventually go digital as we move forward in the world.
The one benefit if everyone goes digital, less and less trees needing to be cut down.
