There are pros as well as cons.
I can't imagine having to wait for a specific TV show to be airing on TV before watching it (and sitting through commercial breaks). Or waiting on the papers to get the latest news. Or having to ask friends if a movie is any good or not. Or not knowing something and having to sift through reference books at the library or track down a relevant expert. Or life before USB technology.
Half the programs I watch now are online-only and couldn't exist more than a decade or so ago. And I hold in my hands an e-reader that can hold possibly hundreds of books, weighs less than a pound, and can last several weeks without needing to recharge.
The future is, for the most part, a huge improvement.
