This is a clear indication that a human brain will be left behind in the future, because nobody will bother to know, how the whole system works. The scholars will no longer use paper books, but instead they will prefer the use of e-books on the iPads .The books in the stores and major books will no longer have meaning to school-going children, because access to laptops...
