- Electronic media is only accessible to a certain part of the population; anyone who can read can pick up a book.
- There is something really nice about the tactile feel of a book or a newspaper.
- The costs of today’s electronic devices, in terms of resources per item, cannot scale in the way that paper goods can.
- You can’t fill the shelves on your bookshelf with digital files.
- Academic publishing houses would lose enormous amounts of money if textbooks auto-updated to the newest edition.
- Electronic media is still lacking when it comes to interesting design; you’re limited in terms of screen size, shape, etc.
- Electronic images can’t match a photo book; not yet. Maybe this is nostalgia.
- Paper comes from renewable resources; iPads come from non-renewable minerals.
