The Death of Print

A primary target as an example of the "death of Print" comes in the form of newspapers. I feel that so many newspapers and magazines are going bankrupt because they aren’t willing to expand their ideas about what a newspaper or magazine can be. Consumers want more. The business model for a newspaper, for example, hasn’t changed much since the printing press was invented

Some print media sources, however, are changing to keep up with consumer need. They’re working hand-in-hand with electronic publishers to develop an online news presence. That there is constant links and url's in newspapers that redirect the reader back to the internet.

The conception of ebooks and their rising fanbase has also created a bias against printed media. Not only can the reader obtain updates and a constant flow of information, but rather this is a greater environmental option as there is no waste created or resources used.
