    when i got my ipad it became more of a way to reacquaint myself with newspaper and to rediscover them. how about you? did you find the ipad resulted in buying less newspaper?

    It would have, except I stopped reading paper years ago. The web is a superior forum. More choice, plus the option of looking things up yourself if you suspect the reporter is wrong.

    I think the computer killed traditional newspaper sales a long time ago. At least for me it did.:)

    There are few and far between unbiased newspapers any more, most Have an agenda to sell the public instead of telling both sides of a story

    I have not touched a paper magazine or newspaper since 1991. All of my reading needs have been through computers and now an IPad and IP. I have been working with computers Since 1984 at a young age and never looked back.
    Days of buliten boards were fun.

    I'm a newshound and have read online news instead of print for about 15 years. I spend more on news now, because I pay for sites with paywalls.

    So far iPad has not changed anything!

    It is the Apple fanboys' illusion that iPad will change everything in the world :)

    Newspaper has been affected already by web news.
