MacNotables #1030: Adam Engst and Andy Ihnatko on the Casualties of eBooks and Why It Is Different This Time

A discussion with Adam Engst and Andy Ihnatko starts with a blog post by Andy, Darwinist Consumerism: What’s the most ethical way to buy books?, and ends with an analysis how long brick-and-mortar bookstores have to live. Along the way, whether you should, and can afford to, support your local bookseller, the loss of a cherished institution, and changes in how future generations will view books are examined. The differences between this digital transition and that of music and video enter into the conversation, as well as comic books, physical media storage challenges and more.
