Some of my textbooks have been available in CD form, so I just get them that way.

    Cool invention though.
    I hear you. I've been reading the WSJ and a bunch of other newspapers (and websites) on line for some time now, but it all comes through a block of heavy plastic called a computer. My only point is that it would be great to carry around something that you can fold and unfold that weighs less than a pound, and that can immediately access the internet.

    I still get the Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, Wired, SI, The Atlantic, etc... delivered to my home, because the portability (and readability) of a newspaper or magazine is so much more convenient than a computer. Someone, someday, is going to solve that problem.

    Your idea reminded me of the newspapers in the Harry Potter movies. I think there was something like that also in some Tom Cruise movie that I can't remember the title of at the moment.

    I agree with you that a virtual newspaper would be pretty cool. Until then I'll keep reading stuff on my laptop and my phone.
