Couldn't do that with a laptop / kindle without me worrying about dropping it.

Although there is a load of info on the internet some of it is complete gibberish (and that's being polite!) but people can't always tell the difference between the good stuff and the absolutely incorrect stuff out there.

I agree 100% with you...I dropped my iPod in the bath once...and there was no going back for it.... Kindles are a nice alternative to those heavy pages, but they don't give the same experience when you are reading a real page turner.

It beats browsing through libraries, it beats paying for a book and actually having to carry it....
well, reading a book is pleasure that you will not get while reading e-book or anything on the computer screen. that's why book will survive many days at least those reader who read books for pleasure.

Well reading an actual book is very different than reading it on a computer. But i think some research is to be done first in order to decide the perfect book for you.

I think another issue is plagiarism--it is so so so soooooo easy to steal stuff from the web and if teachers dont make you submit your paper electronically and have the "checking" software there is no way to tell sometimes. Moreover, you can purchase papers from other people online.....

Internet does make people lazy--hell, you can do all your shopping online, when for a few people shopping was the only cardio they got all week.

It a love/hate relationship for me--love the convinience, but hate that the glowing screen seems to encourage me to sit for another upteenth hour.
Internet may replace books one day when will not be from now. As the development of the economy, the industry and the technology, people's desire of information has never been greater. Books or other print media can be no longer enough for processing the ever greater information, neither for its budget nor for its convenience. Producing and publishing paper books costs more than producing e-books, thus e-books are normally cheaper than the paper ones.
People can also save much more time in doing research via the internet than in finding information that they need via books. What they have to do is nothing more than inputint the key word and press the "Search" button.
Issues of using the internet, though, do exist still. The development of the technique, however, will provide a way to avoid them.

I just love the idea of ebooks. Now, I can find almost all the books on Google store and download them on my android phone. They are much easier to read. Now, I can carry books anywhere I go and can read easily on my smartphone

I love my iBooks I get to read so many fir free (though I still buy ones online as well) which is brilliant for a speed reader like myself as I used to spend a fortune buying books I would read in just a day or so. Now I can read to my hearts content for free!
