Web Overtakes Newspapers In Europe

Web overtakes newspapers in Europe – Yahoo! News

Yahoo have an article about how people in Europe use the Internet to gather news rather than traditional newspapers. TV is still on top, but how long will that last?

Myself I hardly ever read a newspaper on the rare occasions that I do, it just doesn’t seem right. On the internet it’s so easy to swap back and for and skim headlines on the major news sites to find articles you want to read. With the advent of RSS it’s even easier the news is delivered straight to you and then you have the option to read items there and then or at your leisure.

Even TV news bulletins seem pointless when you use RSS even though they try and be as up to date as they possibly can they can never compete with the speed of news transfer on the internet. There will always be that lag of the news breaking and more information being conveyed, with blogs and sites like YouTube allowing anyone to get news to people as and when they want to will TV take a backwards step in the way news is broken.
