are pages going to be something from the past? I don't want to 4-5 years from now be ask for a book reader or a laptop for my kiddo to start school. I mean i'm in favor of technology but darn... I guess we are becoming like the Jetson's!

They had a house of crystal pillars on the planet Mars by the edge of an empty sea, and every morning you could see Mrs. K eating the golden fruits that grew from the crystal walls, or cleaning the house with handfuls of magnetic dust which, taking all dirt with it, blew away on the hot wind. Afternoons, when the fossil sea was warm and motionless, and the wine trees stood stiff in the yard, and the little distant Martian bone town was all enclosed, and no one drifted out their doors, you could see Mr. K himself in his room, reading from a metal book with raised hieroglyphs over which he brushed his hand, as one might play a harp. And from the book, as his fingers stroked, a voice sang, a soft ancient voice, which told tales of when the sea was red steam on the shore and ancient men had carried clouds of metal insects and electric spiders into battle.

I like the quote Clemsnide. As for what Kidd007 is saying I imagine you are seeing where this is going. I think this will be automatically given to or required of a student in the very near future. However; there are many positives to this really. Think about the book bag and locker you had in High school. Then imagine all you need is one little 8x6x1.5 device and your locker is a small square because you don't have much to go into it. You would not need pens and pencils, notebooks, any other books to do or study your school work. I would think it will be more like a cross between a netbook with some upgraded facilities (read better components), and an e-reader. Also many schools give or have laptops at the school for students already. So this would all reduce the costs considerably and in many fields for the education system.
