 IS television/electronic media better than books/print media.. Or it is the other way round?

 TV helps us to remain more intouch with the current news and situations..it is fastest..cheaper..connector..Television can give us loads of information on different topics...just switch on discovery channel and find the world unknown to u. like wild life...sea life.. animals .. humans .. history...etc.  gives us family binding and times together during a show

 whereas Books can put us into wild imaginations and our thoughts and inputs... we are free for imagination...we can have specific info e.g. abt war strategies..or new technology ...

 I know there are many book readers in DMWink.so which of the medium is more useful??

I think it depends on the information itself.

If I want to get some information in a limited amount of time or if I wanted to practically see something which is hard to visualize through words alone, I'd watch TV.

However, if I feel that I need more detail about something - especially a story, I prefer reading books.

Probably becoz some people prefer "Written" piece of material easy to remember as compared to "hearing" and "watching"...just a guess of left right brain types Embarrassed ...if i had to chose... i will go for Tv...it is easy for me to remember visuals

If the choice was between watching the Movie or reading the book .. I would go for reading the book .. because Movies dont do justice to the written word.

For things like News & Immediate information I would rather go to the TV .. because information is readily available.

But overall, I think Books are more useful Smile

Books I think. When your reading books, your brain is acutally working, where as alot of the time when watching tv, I just zone out..esp when is sumthing like the discovery channel(which honestly I have never watch). Like with books, even if your reading something not educational, your still learning since its a book. What do you get out of watching One Tree Hill. Well you get Lucus but dats a different story Embarrassed
