Newspapers will be disappeared soon . Nowadays, most of us use digital things , therefore any moving parts machine become obsolete . Some days , we will drive a car without engine , the whole parts are a bunch of digital control with single battery . I still watch a news from television !

I like to get my news on Facebook and I think that newspapers will disappear gradually. Fewer and fewer people are buying newspapers. They are as Garya nd Romeo said a dying breed.

  I get my news from internet. I used to get my news from TV and radio usually. But now , only from internet.



  When I want to know something,  the first idea is the computer which is on the line.



  Yes, I ever think about this problem, the newspaper. I indeed think that it will disappear soon, dying breed.



  I ever found one newspaper anywhere about one month ago. I lost a certification and then declared on the newspaper. I need took this newspaper’s report to register to the relevant departments. I thought I would  bought one newspaper anywhere for I hadn’t read newspaper for many  years. But I found the everywhere near my office and I didn’t find one newspaper. Only I let my classmate who worked at the newspaper office to send me one.



   I think it is reasonable and normal if the newspaper would disappear. The digital age offer us so many convenience. It saves time and resource.



The newspaper need paper, the paper need wood. But the wood is more and more less because the modern people exploit over the natural resource for the development.



 Newspaper need time to collect information and to print it  and then  deliver paper to our hand. But all that immediately are seen to us by the internet. The digital ages save so much time.
