This is a great post I found on The Rambling Reader and wanted to share it with you all:
Announcing the New Built-in Orderly Organized Knowledge Device, Otherwise Known as the BOOK!
It’s a revolutionary breakthrough in technology: no wires, no electric circuits, no batteries, nothing to be connected or switched on. It’s so easy to use even a child can operate it. Just lift its cover. Compact and portable, it can be used anywhere, yet it is powerful enough to hold as much information as a CD-ROM.
Here’s how it works: the product is constructed of sequentially numbered sheets of paper (recyclable), each capable of holding thousands of bits of information. These pages are locked together with a custom-fit device which keeps the sheets in their correct sequence. By using both sides of each sheet, manufacturers are able to cut costs in half.
Each sheet is scanned optically, registering information directly into your brain. A flick of the finger takes you to the next sheet. The product may be taken up at any time and used by merely opening it. The “browse” feature allows you to move instantly to any sheet, and move forward and backward as you wish. Most come with an “index” feature, which pinpoints the exact location of any selected information for instant retrieval.
An optional accessory allows you to open the product to the exact place you left it in a previous session–even if the product has been closed.
Portable, durable and affordable, this product is the entertainment wave of the future!
