What about the computer?
When I was in high school (shortly after the crust of the earth cooled down enough for habitation) we were told that "in just a few years" we would be living in a paperless society.
Even now every transaction that is completed on-line has the attached advice..."be sure you print this page for verification."
I still love the feel of my fountain pen as it glides smoothly over real, genuine paper. And, no power outages to contend with!
