Probably...eventually....but not for a verrrry long time (measured in decades at minimum).
There are a lot of people out there who would LOVE to see "the end of print".
Some people are simply allergic to any kind of "outdated" medium such as print. And others would like to see the cutting of trees and litter/waste of newpapers go away. The idea of sitting down and flipping through the paper while sippinga cup of coffee has apparently become embedded in our genes. I see this behavior in all ages from 90 down to guys younger than me.
But for all the waste and bulk that a newspaper has, not everyone, everywhere at every time has Internet Access. Even cool little gadgets such as the Nextel Blackberry (which I'm still trying to figure out how to use) has only limited appeal: what would take several minutes in scrolling, typing, and such, one could simply turn the page or pick up another section. Not to mention the fact that most of the online newspapers require registration and/or a fee to read. Why go through that trouble when I can simply spend a quarter or fifty cents, read what I want and not have to worry about leaving a cookie trail?
Remember how PC
's were supposed to eliminate the paper 'office' as we know it?
Every office I've ever been in relies on printouts just as much as they did 30 years ago.
There is nothing more reliable or convenient that good old fashioned print.
I suppose that for specific stories and/or live updates, online is the way to go.
But when it comes to skimming through all of the days stories, plus the syndicated columns, the editorials, the classifieds, and even the ads, at ones leisure, nothing beats a good old fashioned newspapper.
