3G newspaper

I dunno what this little 3G is on the top of the pages on The Sun, but it made me get very excited, sadly, about what could save the newspaper industry - e-paper.

Won't it be fun when our newspapers are made of e-paper - flexible electronic, disposable (eco friendly - would have to be) and interactive. So, full of sensors.

You could grab a paper, and when you see a story you were interested in, you can swipe your 3G mobile or your multimedia device over the sensor and download content - like movie trailers, or holiday details, or indeed audio and video - and maybe blog links - to your device. Then you discard the paper. You've had a good skim read, and you have downloaded your extra content that you are interested in to take with you somewhere else.

I want that now.
