I grew up with the newspapers and was attached to the tactile experience of reading those too -- the newsprint on your fingers, weeding out all the stupid ads, trying to teach my wife how to fold up a section and frisbee it across the room -- folded edge first, for chrissakes! Then we cancelled the newspaper and by the next day, I’d forgotten all about how fantastic it was.
