“Why would we ever buy a book when we can buy a computer?
Textbooks are often obsolete before they are even printed,”

How fitting is this one? When we proposed some new courses for the technology department, some of them asked if they were getting new textbooks to go along with the software (Flash, Dreamweaver, iLife, etc.). How is that possible? Versions come out only months after initial release that render the manauls outdated. – post by pjhiggins
