A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

March 3rd, 2010 Sponge

“If you compare traditional ways of reading like picking up a book, magazine or newspaper to reading on an e-reader like the Kindle 2 or the Nook (an e-reader is an electronic device that allows you to read books, magazines and newspapers on it electronically), which one would you pick and why? What would it take to make people more likely to read books, magazines and newspapers on this new technology” (You MUST write 8 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

  1. you will have to make the books more interesting. and make them something that people would want to read. you can make them ABOUT THINGS that we like .you can make them shorter. you can make them longer. you can make them entertaning. you can make the book be a whole mystery. or they can be a comic book.

  2. i thing that people would wont to read more interested thing like a comic book but mostly now people read thing in google alot not as many still read new papers like before but if writer wont there book to sell they got to make the book really interested but some writer put the book out for sell whe the movi for the book had jest came out that what dont sell book but if they wont people tp read there book they got to make the book interesting like a mysterias tittle or cachy lead

  3. I dont care if im reading something in a book or eletronic advise. As long as i reading a book about myhtical creatures. Most kids would pick reading a book with technology. They like flashy new things. Little people i know actaully finish a book though. Wheater its on the computer or not. Kids want new tecnolgy, but they also want a newer way to learn. A new way to make reading more fun is compined several of the best sellers together. thats one way to get a big hit if you compined them right.

  4. I WHOULD PICK ELECTRONACLY BECAUSE ITS FASTER BETER AND WHO HAS TIME TO READ WITH OTHER THANG TO DO LIKE SCHOOL,WORK OR MOVING HEAVY OBJETS

  5. I would rather read a magazine. Cause it has news, pictures, and and has little problems and games. And bookes are just to boring. No pictures no games no comics. Just plain boring and has no instrest. The news papers are alright cause it shows whats going on in ur state. Pluss magazines are better cause they show the new eletronics and other new 2010 eletronics. Pluss magazines have lots of topics to read from.

  6. I THINK THAT THE MAGAZINE. BECAUSE MAGAZINES HAVE MORE PICTURES, GOSSIP,PICS OF CELEBERTIES. AND BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE FUN TO READ. AND BECAUSE THEY GIVE YOU FACTS ABOUT CELEBERTIES, AND IT TELLS YOU IF AND WHO CELEBERTIES ARE MARIED TO. AND IT TELLS YOU IF THE CELEBERTIES HAVE KIDS. AND HOW OLD THE CELEBERTIES ARE, AND IF THEY HAVE KIDS, IT TELLS YOU HOW OLD THEY ARE AND WHAT THEIR NAME IS. AND IT TELLS YOU OTHER THINGS.

  7. The one I would probably chose would be reading a good book, because then I wouldn’t have to have batteries and some one talking to me like I can’t read a good book by myself. people will not learn how to read if the electonics speek to to us and tell every word from biggining to end. old book’s will not be able to be read in the feauter if the electronic’s take over the book’s. then our whole history would be gone because nobody will know how to read. then will be stupid and wasted and rotton. and it will take so much more of the economy it will probably die. this is why I think we should not do this. But also it would take no time for people to want it.

  8. You would have to make ever thank good so mor and more people will look at them. Then you would have no propme to sell them but I we did this as a class that would be so asome. I can not say that I we did thai it would look dome it would looke good that we got in and did something. I thank we sould do something for a class projet. I thanke if we made more bookes insroring that we put our mides in it. I love this class if we did more projete in school that would make people stop saying that i do not wont to do this.

  9. i’d rather read a magazine than any other book.

  10. a magzine because it tell you about the world most of.

  11. I would choose the electronic one because I am lazy and don’t like to read. But I really don’t have anything else to say sorry.

  12. i hate book in t read but if i have to i will

  13. i think that both are fine, as long as no trees are involved. i dont know what they are anyway, so i guess both. (as long as no trees are involved with the making and processing of these devices!) (ILUVEMEHTREEZ) 😀 🙂 ;D

  14. I would choose a reagular book because you can take it any where ever you want with you.

  15. i would choose the elctronic, one because it reads for you
    and you dont have to waste our breth on reading it well thats if you read outloud. but it still would be cool to have somthing reading to you.

  16. i like a book better because it better. and i just like reading books i dont know why my reason is but i just think it will be better if i read a book plus it eaiser for me to read becuase comic books or magzines some are hard to read because of their letters are so small but books their words are bigger then they are.

  17. They would have to be sporty. So that I could learn more about sports. Like baeskball and football.

  18. I would pick electronic because it better and eaiser and i wouldd rather type then read a book because i think reading a book is boring

  19. I would have to say books because they are interresting.

  20. i would pick the e reader because they are electronic and can put like favorite books on it instead of the NEWS

  21. I would choose the electronic because you dont have to read , it reads to you !

  22. to me it wouldnt make a difference between a book and a electronic reader thig . because ethier way your going to end up reading a book . and i think people will end up picking books because some people like too flip pages and stuff . but mainly because that would be too complicated too deal with . akll the bottons and stuff. when all you have to do in a book is flip the paige and go along with the story.

  23. i would pick the electronic one

  24. i would use the technology because its easyer to understand. good things about it is that you will not mess up and forget were you are when your reading.

  25. I prefer to read a real book. The regular books are larger. E readers will just make it even longer to read one book. Real books don’t need charging. To get people to read more on them You could add a comic book feture. You would have more kids using them. Also add older books. Text books could be avalible for kids to study.

  26. I think I would use e reader because Its easy and it has more variety. I say the because if you want a book you have to go to the library.While the e readers you can get it right at your spot. Also its easier to To find books. You just look it up.In the libray you have to look threw staks and staks of books to find the one your looking for. You can also get texts books on them and be which would make them more popular.Thats my opinion.

  27. I would choose the electronic one because they read normal speed and say words correctly and im lazy

  28. I thing book because you can learn a lot from read book like if you were to won’t to larn all the super bowls you can read a book they can give you all the details that you need to know and if you need to learn math better you can get a book to learn more about it and you can read a funny book to make you laugh so that why you should read books.

  29. I would choose an e-reader because it would help you with the words that you don’t know how to say and it wold also help you to understand what you are reading if you don’t understand what you read.

  30. you wiLL have To make The books more inTeresTinq. and make Them someThinq ThaT peopLe wouLd wanT to read. you can make hem abouT Thinqs ThaT we Like .you can make Them shorTer. you can make Them lonqer. you can make Them enTerTaninq. you can make The book be a whoLe mysTery. or They can be a comic book.

  31. I would choose magazine because there are more intresting pictures and stories about my favorite actress, singers, or rappers. also they have them purfumes that smell good and make you want to buy them. So thats why i choose a magazine over a regular book.

  32. People want something new and that is what it is. The people asked for more and got more. People don’t want out of date stuff. They want technolgy ang games they havn’t seen or played. Nobody wants old stuff thats been out for years. Plus they like to interact with others who are playing with them on the same game. most people also like to play on or from there computer.

  33. In my opinion, books would be much more preferable than the e-reader for many reasons. These reasons consist of the following. Books are much more reliable and easier to maintain. Having an e-reader wold mean having to constantly worry about it becoming damaged or worn. With this device being so costly, it would be difficult to replace or repair them. Books are also much cheaper and give the reader a sense of “accomplishment” as they progress into the book. Although the e-reader may have a larger variety of stories and articles in one specific place, the classic book would be my choice.

  34. I myself would perfer the regualar books and magazines. Just something about the e-reader. Yes it’s cool yea it would come in handier than have no way to go out and buy a book. How will you take it to school Because teachers and schools don’t let electronice out without them being taken away. You could possible drop it and it would probably break seeing as if you drop a book it would no cause as much as 299 dollars down the drain.

  35. I would read a regular book for many reasons. Well electroics, as much as I love them, ruin your eyes. Also electronics require batteries or charging to work. If I’m reading a good book I don’t want to stop to recharse the battery or change the batteries. Also how can you help your reading skills if the story is always read to you like a 1st grader. It’s good to have one because you can store more than one book on the e-reader so you don’t have to carry multipul books at one time. So having an e-reader would just have to get used to because we are probally going to see more in the future.

  36. i would rather use the e-reader then read a book the reguler way. the e-reader would help alot more people that have troble reading or cant see.

  37. i would chose the e-reader. because it wouldnt take as much time to read. because you wouldnt have to change the pages. also because in case you wanna take a break you can just stop. but if you have a regular book then you might lose the page. also if you lose the book then you are messed up. because then you for one wasted money two lost a book you were reading. but if you have an e-reader then all you have to do is pause it and then not worry about losing it.

  38. i think that more people will use a elelltric reader because those who like reading is always looking for new ways to read.and for those who love computers will most likely use this program just because it’s on the computers.i would use this program because i think it’s easier to use. then to pick up a book.

  39. i like a book better because it better. and i just like reading books i dont know why my reason is but i just think it will be better if i read a book plus it eaiser for me to read becuase comic books or magzines some are hard to read because of their letters are so small but books their words are bigger then they are.

  40. In my opinion, books would be much more preferable than the e-reader for many reasons. Books are much more reliable and easier to maintain. Having an e-reader world means having to worry about it becoming damaged . With this device being so costly, it would be difficult to replace or repair them. Books are also much cheaper and give the reader a sense of “accomplishment” as they progress into the book. Although the e-reader may have a larger variety of stories and articles in one specific place, the classic book would be my choice

  41. I would read traditional books. Because on the e-reader they dont have books i like. I like to read sport center magazine. Because i like to read about my faviorte player Dwayne Wade. I like reading the news paper too. Because you can read about your local team winning or losing. ANother reason i like looking at sport center magazines is becuase i like to look at the pictures. WHats that old saying a pictures worth a thousand words.

    Sincerly, Dondre Busby AKA Mr.Swagger Kidd

  42. I WOULD MAGAZINE BECAUSE IT IS PICTURES. AND OTHER THINGS LIKE STUFF ABOUT PEOPLE. AND THEY BE HAVE NEW STUFF. LIKE UP TO DATE NEWS ABOUT ALL KINDS OF THINGS. THAT ARE POPING OFF IN THE WORLD. LIKE PICTURES OF NEW SHOES. AND OTHER THINGS THAT INTREST ME. LIKE WHO IS BEIN DRAFTED IN TO THE NFL. BUT ALL THINGS ARE DIFFRENT BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE DIFFRENT THINGS.

  43. I WOULD PICK MAGAZINE BECAUSE IT IS PICTURES. AND OTHER THINGS LIKE STUFF ABOUT PEOPLE. AND THEY BE HAVE NEW STUFF. LIKE UP TO DATE NEWS ABOUT ALL KINDS OF THINGS. THAT ARE POPING OFF IN THE WORLD. LIKE PICTURES OF NEW SHOES. AND OTHER THINGS THAT INTREST ME. LIKE WHO IS BEIN DRAFTED IN TO THE NFL. BUT ALL THINGS ARE DIFFRENT BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE DIFFRENT THINGS.

  44. I think it is better to read a book because it has all the trill. And you can get into the book better

  45. i think the kindall. i like it beacuse it is way better. it can read to you or you could read it your self. you would be better off listening to it your self. people like different things though. magazines are to much work. so are books. so i like the new kindall.

  46. ~*i think people should use books in stead of the kindle so they can get more knologe

  47. i would pick a magazine. the reason i say that is because its in pictures and there is alot of info in them. i like sports to. so i like reading about who being drafted, scheadle, biggest headline, championship issuse, and all that. but people like diffrent stuff but my interest is sports. u should read it.

  48. I would choose the e- reader beascuase its something new and more people with use the e-reader and most people like new elctronics that is out.

  49. i think that people should just read unelectronically.because some people read at a diffrent pase than other people so you would’ntbe able to read at your own pase with the e- reader.

  50. dkfdkddjfhj

  51. I would pick a magazine because it show pictures and u can learn more bout famous people and other stuff that happen that really important.

  52. i think peopLe shouLd read books because you can qet more smarter but they wiLL have to be interestinq so that peopLe wiLL want to read them;

  53. i would pick the e reader. it is funer and easer. not fliping pages.or caring around books. and it is cool. and your frends will wish they had one. and you can have fun.

  54. I would get the kindle because instead of reading a book to myself
    I can just have the kindle read for me.Some people like different things though. i love the new kindle. it is a better way to read. say if you were busy but you want to read well the kindle can read to you any where you want to read. you should chose the kindle. magazines are boring. you would be better off listening to the voice of the new kindle.

  55. i would pick the kindle because technology is improving so they will always get better . but the bad thing about the kindle is that you cant get free books to rent and they cost money to buy the book on the kindle. but bad things about the book is that you can always rip a page,cover.i would definitly ppick the kindle but for its price its really expensive. if i had the extra money to go and buy one i would . i will proboly wait untill the prices go down on thr kindle before i buy one.

  56. I would pick the e-reader. It is easier and books. Books kill trees because of the paper and the e-reader does not. That is good for are plannet. You don’t have to pay as much as you do if you buy the book. Books are not all about pictures so if the e-reader does not have pictures who cares. Most books don’t even have pictures. That is why i pick the e-reader

  57. i would pic a book because im always on punishment and thats all im allowed to read. plus im used 2 it cause im still on punishment. books take longer 2 r3ad so yea dats probly y im hooked on them cause i get weeks added on.havin a e-reader probly catches our attention cause lik it or not we r LAZY and dont feel lik r3ading nuthin. to be honest i lik r3adin mi own stuff cause i use these lil vioces for each part, weird i kno, plus i lik figurin out what tha ppl look lik in mi head.dats mi opinion. i kno all ppl r different but face it pretty soon were all gonna b usin those lil e-reader things. it gonna b tha new thing 4 2010. so might as well get used to it now 😦

  58. Because there are diffrent types of books and stuff. as we know you need money to get them.also walking to a library is tireing. or if you over due the book. thats why the kindle you dont need to turn in the books. well you kind of do or you will pay for it. the sony ones are not wire-less so you cant take it wiht you. with the kindle you can take it any were. you can also use the internet. you can borrow book online and read it any time.

  59. i would pick magzine and books. because it will cost less. and they are old fasion and funner. and the other things can break. there want your money. and books are easyer to keep up with. you can get a kindel stolen easy. and a book will be easy to replace.(: (: (:

  60. I LIKE THEM BOTH. IT IS GOOD TO READ. SO THE KINDALL WILL BE GOOD EVERY NOW AND THEN.PLUS YOU CAN READ IN THE DARK BCAUSE IT ENDS OFF LIGHT.

  61. I would pick the e-reader because it is eaiser. And books kill trees cause its using paper. The e-reader is way better because you dont have to pay for each book that you read.Books arent all about pictures so who cars if the e-reader does not have picturers.And the e-reader you dont have to keep flippen pages. Thats why i pick the e-reader

  62. the kindle is good.

  63. i like the kindle more

  64. the kindle 2. because it saves trees from being choped down. saves up less room to put in your belongings. it is a cool item to have. it is light weght. it has a great grip on it. the battery last a long time. makes a great present.

  65. i DONOT NOW WAT TO SAY BUT THERE IS MORE THANS WE NEED THAN THEM.
