Do you think that modern technology, such as the internet and computers will ever replace the book or the written word as the main source of information?

It is true that
information
technology
has grown rapidly in the past few years, and many people predict that it will develop faster in the
future
. Some people believe that
print
out books and articles will be replaced by
computer
devices in the
future
. To a certain extent, I would agree that the number of printed books will decrease significantly in the
future
, but I do believe that
hardcopy
Suggestion
hard copy
books will continue to exist in the
future
. On one hand, it is a fact that with the existence of the
computer
and the internet
technology
, people can obtain a lot of
information
. People would just open the device, connect it to a
network and
Accept comma addition
network, and
they could search all articles that they need. There are tens of thousands of websites which provide valuable
information
such
as www.

geographic.

or www.

.
Besides
that, many news corporations
also
provide electronic newspapers these days like CNN or BBC, which can be read in the notebook, tab or smartphone.
As a result
, many people prefer to read the
information
from the electronic devices rather than to purchase the
print
out one.
On the other hand
, it is predicted that
print
out books, newspapers or magazines will continue to exist in
future
, though the number will decrease drastically.
Firstly
, not everyone likes to read an article through the gadget directly, since they think it is uncomfortable. They believe that the radiation of
computer
screen would cause
eyes

eye
irritation, and give a negative effect on their eyes' health.
Secondly
, it is undeniable that the development of internet
technology
is not equally spread all over the world. The online services would only be available in advance countries and in some major cities of developing and poor countries. As a consequence, people who live in the rural or remote areas will still need the
print
out version. In conclusion,
although
it is true that the number of electronic books and news has increased considerably in the recent years, but the existence of the
hardcopy

hard copy
version will be irreplaceable. As some people do not feel comfortable in reading an article directly from the
computer
screen, and others who live in the countryside might not have the access to the
technology
