Charles Macias — Tablet Textbooks

Throughout reading the chapter on Books and the Power of Print, I found it quite ironic how I was able to read through it on my tablet device. To think how the evolution of media has crossed over on electronic platforms. It is a perfect example of media convergence; the ability to read my textbook through an electronic device! It made it wonder a bit also, what are the consequences and benefits of such? Am I technically hurting the printing press industry by encouraging electronic print media? Or is it just more economically and ecologically more beneficial in all? Interesting to argue for both sides of the situation.
