Are bookshelves becoming obsolete?

Are bookshelves becoming obsolete?. A great debate on io9, definitely worth reading the comments.

Our growing shelf of Golden West books, some of them very old and highly collectible, are sufficient proof to us of the idea that bookshelves will not go away until books do.

The Only Article About Iron Man 3 Worth Reading

This little piece from Grantland about director Shane Black tells, in an indirect way, the  only story about Iron Man 3 you are going to want to know outside of the plot line itself.
