The computer age has come full circle ladies and gentlemen.
Students are toting "flash drives" around all day long. Some are carrying around PDAs,
Palm Pilots, and laptops just to take notes! What happened to the good old days when kids took out a pen and paper out to jot down their notes? Now we tug a Blackberry out of our pockets. Rather than use a calculator to do a math test, we use our cell phones.

Cell phones, PDAs, and computers made paper and pen obsolete.
Considering the fact that technology is so widely used,
why do we even bother producing paper anymore?

LIKE ThIS! agreed. but we need paper to print things i guess. in my opinion, schools should no longer pa for silly expenses such as textbooks but get laptops or as a requirement for students, no tool other then a laptop which makes it wasier because laptops can be used each year. and no printing assignents rather school emails or everyone make a semi professional email n wala! save the trees!
