I'm not going to be terribly dogmatic about my position (rather
difficult when you're not entirely convinced of it yourself).

>The library fallacy

Still, here's another perspective:

o The Internet is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

o The Internet uses up less space than a local library

o The Internet contains a LOT more information than a local library

o You don't have to leave your house to visit the Internet

o The Internet contains things libraries don't (esp. applications)

What it boils down to is this: is it fundamentally easier and quicker
to retrieve technical information from the Internet or from a local library?

Just a thought.

The usual disclaimers apply - I don't speak for QUALCOMM, they don't speak
for me....
