since you can not use these high tech items on shabbos. Seforim and books will never be obsolete

Although as a side note they do save a lot of space not having to have lots of book cases in your house
and still have all the seforim in your device

How could they possibly become obselete? Do you think people will stop learning on Shabbos??

Why do we have to read the tefilla from the phone? Why don’t they just add an option to text it?

Well the Rebbe wanted bayit maleh seforim…I guess he foresaw this as well.

I guess with shabbos and yom tov that will never happen

Part of the reason we have bayis molei seforim is so they stare us in the face and remind us to learn. That will never happen with technology.

I find it weird when I see people davening from technology devices. Just seems inappropriate. You can make all the excuses u want but its quite odd.

I find it odd too, but then I recall that once upon a time bound books were also very odd new fangled things too. Those folks who liked their stone tablets and parchment or papyrus scrolls must have thought books were problematic. And, of course, there was great opposition to the printing press.

I am wondering. What is the status of shaimos with computers and all the other devices having Torah on them?
