Print Media Hopes Apple Tablet Comes with Eraser

Link to January 26 New York Times article, "With Apple Tablet, Print Media Hopes for a Payday".

Excerpt: Almost all media companies have run aground in the Internet Age as they gave away their print and video content on the Web and watched paying customers drift away as a result.

People who have seen the tablet say Apple will market it not just as a way to read news, books and other material, but also a way for companies to charge for all that content. By marrying its famously slick software and slender designs with the iTunes payment system, Apple could help create a way for media companies to alter the economics and consumer attitudes of the digital era.
