Google to Digitilize and Bring Old Published Newspaper Articles Online

Do You Read the News in the Newspaper or the Internet?

Extra! Extra! Read all about Google bringing old newspaper articles and archives online, right on. . . their blog? So yes, Google is going to start digitizing news archives so you can read virtually any article ever published in any newspaper.

Excellent news, to be sure, but I'm also wrapping my head around reading the news on newsprint, on the Internet; will my head actually explode if there is an old published article about Google that I'm reading on Google's Chrome?

I may be stretching this, but let's talk this out — do you ever have a real newspaper in your hands anymore, or do you exclusively read news on the Internet now?

Both actually. But more newspapers. I just like the feel of newsprint.

I'm a traditionalist, it took me a while to put down that finger-staining publication I read every Sunday. Now, it's only online. Those poor newspapers...

Part of my morning routine is to check the website of the local newspapers and national newspapers. I rarely read the printed copy.

I peruse several different newspapers online every day, it's so convenient (and green!). I do enjoy getting an actual weekend paper though, to see what's going on in my community, get the ads and coupons, etc.

I read the news on the internet (I read news from the UK) and I read the newspaper everyday. If I don't have my newspaper (I don't read it with food or anything, I just like to be updated) then there is hell in my house!

What about a choice for both? I read both the local paper each morning and news updates online throughout the day.

I don't really just rely on just one media to get the news. Whatever's within reach works for me - newspaper, tv, net.

I get my content from alot of places, 95% of the time its online... However the local newspapers are great and if I'm bored whilst cooking ill have a flick through. And sometimes its nice to read the paper at lunchtime at work.
