A newspaper announces a first step to get away from paper

Looks like the Seattle Post-Intelligencer will start delivering news on flexible displays, like discussed previously:

Sometime in the next two years, if Hearst Corp.'s plans work out, a handful of Seattle Post-Intelligencer readers will begin getting their morning news not from the paper on the front stoop or by dropping change in a corner newsbox — or even on their laptop — but from a new electronic newspaper that's displayed on a screen as light and flexible as paper. The screen will be about the size of a small tabloid newspaper, and it will be in color.

The electronic P-I will carry real-time news, same as the Internet, not yesterday's news like traditional papers. Readers will turn the e-paper's pages by touching the flexible screen. And when those readers head off to work, they will roll up the electronic P-I and stuff it in their pocket, purse, or briefcase.

Many of us have moved away from the medium a long time ago, and have not looked back. It makes no sense to me to keep getting the local paper when all the news that you need to read is online. Sure you may miss out on some wedding and birth announcements here and there, but if they were all that important to begin with, wouldn't you know about it anyway?
