2010 Tech Trends: Facebook, eBooks, and the Groupon | BlogHer: “2010 was a fascinating and fast-paced year for tech. Some trends that have been around for a while reached the tipping point this year, and some new trends are emerging that will dominate 2011.

Many who have the capability to buy an eBook instead of a printed copy are choosing that as the preferred option. There are several reasons for this, among them lower price, instant delivery, and lightweight portability for a reader’s entire library.
