Swept away by the digital world, the classic old newspaper reader might be disappearing so fast that in a few years nobody will remember the sound of the daily news hitting the mailbox, or know how to pay journalists for keeping everybody up to date on the latest stories from near and far.

The digital media promises to take over and give even more catching stories, anytime, anywhere… individually tailored for everybody… for free –  Digital news you can like and share while it watches your every move.

What a different world from back when proud men was reading the old newspapers so huge that holding them up was a statement in itself.
