Actually paperweights tend to be more colourful

Bookninja and others note that Amazon's policy on digital rights management as it relates to the Kindle is such that "remember, kids, at the flip of a switch you could no longer “own” any of your files from Amazon or iTunes. All it takes is legal loophole, a desire for more money, or a bankruptcy and you’re left with an expensive paperweight. And we all know those things never happen."

Conversely, a copy of something both timely and timeless will be yours forever if you wish.
