As I was re-reading a Sherlock Holmes story on my iPhone with Google Reader app (I like it very much) my eye caught sight a photographic print on the my bedroom wall. I wondered whether the print and paintings, what are considered part of home decor, would be replaced by digital frames in the same way that books are being replaced by eBooks.
Amazon recently proclaimed that they were selling more eBooks than physical books.
Will this digital conversion also replace the physical print in frame on the living room wall?
Were there unique differences between eBooks and a digital picture frames?
At first glance, they do seem different – but I thought it would be interesting to enumerate the differences.
The world has come to the conclusion that reading books is very convenient on digital devices, whether it be an iPad, an iPhone, a Kindle, a NOOK etc. The only screen that I cannot read on for any length of time is my computer screen. No matter what anyone says, I still like to curl up with a good eBook – something that I can’t do with this giant screen.
Given that background, I began to wonder whether the living room print, the living room photos, the paintings in the hallway, would be replaced by digital frames.
