Wikipedia has 'killed' the Britannica Encyclopaedia

After 244 years the Encyclopaedia Britannica has announced that it will stop its printed version for the first time, since its first publication. Future version of this historic encyclopaedia will be found in an electronic form. This was expected, due to the fact that we currently live in the digital age. 

The first Encyclopaedia Britannica was first published in 1768 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Many people will be upset with this new development. This emphasises the fact that in the near future we will not be able to find actual books in stores, instead we will be buying digital books.
