Last week when I had jury duty, I spent a certain amount of time looking around the room to see who was reading what. I saw a Kindle and a Nook — about 5 tablet type devices in all. That said, about 75% of the would-be jurists were reading. In addition to the tablets, some had magazines but the vast majority had some kind of Bio Optical Organized Knowledge devices.
And I really did pay attention to how many people had tablets vs print material. Why? Because we’re always being told that tablets etc are the rage. Print books are a thing of the past. They are on their way out. Yet I sat in a fair cross section of society and that isn’t what I observed. Just something I’m noodling about.
