I came across this cartoon today. It made me chuckle.
A year ago, I shared how Amazon, the world’s top bookseller, stated that they now sell more books via the Kindle device and app than they do paper copies. For me, it was a difficult decision to think of going towards an e-book reader, as I like paper books with a nice warm cup of coffee alongside it.
I don’t believe paper books will become obsolete. But I think we can take note of where we are headed in world and consider how to utilise such an opportunity. Reflecting on some of these things, I was able to purchase an iPad just under a year ago. And it has been a wonderful tool, of which has sparked great ideas in me of how we can better train the pastors and churches we work with around the world.
I hope you were able to have at least a small laugh at the cartoon above. And there are plenty of e-reading devices out there to consider, spanning from $79 (new basic Kindle model) to $829 (64GB iPad2 with 3G). My question is two-fold: 1) Will the new Kindle Fire be the greatest competitor to the iPad and 2) Will iPad come out with a “Nano” version in the near future?
