Newspaper out of date or still good for free stuff?

Most people only buy the newspaper when they are going to paint a room in their house and use it to lay on the floor but what you might not look into is the lazy people who put ad's in it to do easy stuff for cash. This one guy awhile back paid my friend $20 to get rid of his old fridge which was still working good and even if it wasnt it could always be sold as scrap metal.

  3. I heard someone say once that in the future people will all have gone to internet and someone will say "Hey look at this new technology, we'll print it on paper now and you can take it anywhere, even without internet access!"

  4. Better yet, don't shell out the money for a newspaper, and use craigslist. :)

  7. I disagree. I still read the paper fairly regularily.

    The medium only has a few years left, but it's certainly still going.

  8. Newspapers are definitely being overtaken by the internet. It takes them too long to come out with news because they have to print them and then distribute them. They still have one advantage over the internet and that is mobility. It is a lot easier to carry a newspaper with you and read it on your lunch break then to carry the internet with you. However, with netbooks and IPads and tablet PCs, newspapers may not have that advantage for long.
