It's not the iPhone or the Milestone or any of those other fancy smartphones. This clever ad from The Sun points out a few advantages still inherent to the old paper-and-ink medium. It's true that loss of connection, small screen sizes, and battery problems aren't a problem with traditional methods of media distribution. The Sun's ad team deserves kudos for a brilliant send-off of the iPhone ads. Unfortunately for them, wanting print media to be superior to new media doesn't make it so. While your newspaper won't run out of power or disconnect you because you live in NYC, it also can't download video games, play music and movies or act as a pedometer while you're running. Sure, the screen is smaller than a paper, but any smartphone on the planet packs a billion times more content than any news rag could ever hope to hold.That's not to say there isn't a place for printed words on paper. Nothing will ever entirely eliminate the venerable paperback book entirely. Physical newspapers, on the other hand, might not be very long for this world. Several venerable papers, including the Christian Science Monitor, have already switched over to all-digital distribution methods. Digitization is the wave of the future, even for the "best' handheld device in the UK. See the video below.
