While there’s no question that this e-commerce model increases buyer convenience and streamlines distribution, it does not represent a significant advance over the real-world experience of buying a book in a brick-and- mortar store.
The buying process incorporates rapidly evolving technologies, but the content remains decidedly low-tech: paper, ink, and glue.
A more visionary scenario comes from futurists and science fiction writers who have long imagined the advent of electronic books (eBooks).
These handheld devices would display the content found in traditional books on the miniature screens of portable devices, eliminating the need for physical books as we know them. We’re a long way from abandoning traditional books, but Billiard eBooks have arrived.
Presenting the content of traditional books in digital form, today’s eBooks can be read via a variety of hardware devices: desktop computers, dedicated eBook readers, and other personal electronic devices. Purchasers of eBooks
typically download the electronic content directly from Web sites to one of these devices.
