Funny how this says privacy will be gone without condemning for that the very things on this list it so lauds. Writing checks is more private than magnetic strips, just as real cash is more private than all. Using some kind of Internet for saving files is definitely a privacy/corruption problem, and so on. Anything involving networked electrons is a threat to privacy. That includes your e-books.
Nevermind it’s easier to flip through a real book to find something fast than swipe-swipe-swipe. And land lines are great when cells stop working, and they just fit better. Unless you’re hooked to the new FO, which doesn’t work when power is out.
It’s ridiculous to say music will die.

Who searches by swiping? Enter a search term and search a thousand pages in a second. I’ve been a lover of books (the physical objects) all my life, but in recent years have totally gone over to ebooks. Virtually all the classics (and many non-classics) are available in electronic form for free.
Though not as good for books that have large diagrams, for reading most kinds of texts ebook readers are much better. They are light, easy to hold, and you can adjust the text size and font to suit you. I consider the ebook reader one of the greatest inventions of the last half century.
