Your idea is good, a lot of information in a little bit of storage area. But how long will your phone or Ipad thingy last? Most are good for two years. Batteries wear down and the whole thing needs replaced. Not sure you can store batteries. But maybe another device that is not being used. Spare device?
I prefer cards, real books, sewing, hand tools to build things with. Garden tools, small animals to take care, etc..
I really don’t think I would have the time to get bored, probably I will be looking for more time to sleep. Even now I don’t have time to get things done so when you work every day to keep food on the table literally, I don’t think you will get bored. Maybe kids that have the phone attached to their fingers, but oh my goodness, if it won’t work we may have teenage riots on our hands. Kids might look up and see the world.
Watched the movie Venture to the center of the earth and the kid was always looking for service on his phone, how ironic, not sure they put up cell towers down there, but hey you never know.
Personally I hate cell phones, don’t carry it with me, I do have one, but don’t use it for anything other than making a call. My boss could not get a hold of me at any hour so he bought me an I pad, I turned it off and put it aside, he still can’t a hold of me! My time is my time and I won’t be tied to any electronics. I say this as I type this on the company computer.
The idea of having books on hand is good, but I prefer them printed. (Yes, I work for a printer)
There certainly are advantages to having printing material but the disadvantage is the space it takes up. A Kindle on the other hand can hold information that if it was printed in books, the books would fill up entire shelves.
There is no question of the benefits of real paper…There is also no question on the benefits of the electronic solution if protected from EMP….Seriously, an entire library of congress in the palm of your hands…the size of a single hard drive but without the need to connect it to anything to read/access the information!
My first Kindle(non-Fire edition) is now going on 6 years of HEAVY, DAILY use for personal reading and running small games or web surfing….Without a single glitch to date…..single battery charge last me about 3 weeks with about an hour of usage per day average.
I cant of course say every single one of them produced is perfect since I’ve now only owned 2 total including the kids edition, but the ones I’ve owned are so far, infallible.
Them there’s is just da facts…..
I don’t give glowing reviews lightly and research everything tenfold normally before a purchase…..don’t know if that’s worth anything to anyone but there it is.
again, like in the thread I posted on before there are free books to review and then download about every week to fill that lil’ puppy….Here is April 18th email I received from another pepper from a local group(Hat tip to L.D.)
Always check price before purchasing as item might have returned to full price.
