Regarding politicians complaining that the iPad is destroying jobs, like libraries, bookstores and all book-related jobs--
Here's my response:
When Gutenberg first started printing books, the public was all up in arms because no one would use their memory any more. Up until that time books were handed down through generations of story tellers. Well, look where that got us. We are just now on the forefront of seeing what will come of the new innovations. Hooray!
