If the New York Times shut down their presses and bought everyone a Kindle, they would actually end up saving money. Brilliant.
People really need to move on from dead trees and get their information online. I love how a lot of the comments in the article are of the form "what would I use to soak up the dog piss or keep the door propped open?" That is exactly why newspapers need to die. It is such a waste of energy to produce something that just ends up in landfill. Advertisements could also be shown on the Kindle so that argument doesn't fly either.
