WILL WIDESPREAD WIRELESS BROADBAND CONNECTIONS KILL PRINT MEDIA?
Will widespread wireless broadband connections, such as Wi-Fi, put an end to printed newspapers and magazines?
Why or why not? Would you prefer to read newspapers and magazines in print or on a mobile device that provides similar or better readability compared to print media? Why or why not? How can the media industry take advantage of the wireless Internet trend?
- Widespread wireless broadband will not be a hindrance for the media to continue printing newspapers and magazines because not everyone can access the internet, maybe almost but not all. Adults, especially our grandmothers and grandfathers grow old reading news in a printed material. Some civilized places do have easy access to internet connection, thus, provinces may not be able to read news using computers or the like. For me as a student, I would prefer reading news on a mobile device because it is more convenient and cheap. Just a click away and *poops*, I can easily have news that I want. Everywhere I go, internet accessibility is so much easy because of the fast outgrowing of technology. Media industry can take advantage of the wireless internet trend by means of having their own web sites wherein they can post their articles, news and other informations that are usually printed in newspapers. Though in reality, media industry can fall down because of this scenario but they should continue to produce printed newspapers for those who can't access internet connection. Media industry is where every news starts, so even there is a widespread of wireless broadband connections, they should continue what they started--bringing printed news to people. :)
