Future Predictions, Take 3

Number Three:  The Newspaper.

The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

**Hubby and I have just cancelled our daily paper, that we've been receiving for over 30 years.  For one thing, we just don't have the time anymore to read a paper.  For another, we're getting most of our news on TV and via the internet.**
