iPad Eliminated Thousands of American Jobs

by on April 28th, 2011

Jesse Jackson Jr., who himself owns an iPad, blames the iPad for “eliminating thousands of American jobs.” Why do you need to go to Borders anymore? Why do you need to go to Barnes and Noble? Buy an iPad and download your newspaper, download your book, download your magazine…What about the jobs associated with the books, libraries, newspaper, paper and publishing companies?

It was reported that last month Jackson was promoting the Apple iPad on the House floor.

In our belief a healthy change is always inevitable. You can not stop the system to change. You can change yourself. You can equip yourself to meet new technology and leave old fashioned ways to get knowledge and news. Reading ebooks and newspapers online is something that is going to happen a lot in future. Think about the cost saving it will result, when you do not use paper. You do not have to waste time to go to Barns and Noble yourself when you can download books and read them when you need them. You can get reviews about books that Barns and Noble won’t provide.

Technology has been and will change the ways we live and interact with this wold. We should meet new technology with open mindedness, learn it, use it and leave old ways behind.
