June 2010
Nieman Reports;Summer2010, Vol. 64 Issue 2, p75
The author offers his view on the impact of tablet computers, Internet and mobile media on monomedia or print platforms. He believes that print media, like newspapers and magazines, will remain but it will experience several problems, such as decreasing market share and income from advertising, increasing production and distribution costs, and losing margins and profits. He cites that tablet computers are good opportunities for journalists, publishers and editors to provide news to their readers and offer services to advertisers in a new and dynamic way.
