I suspected that the ROI is low. If you really want hardcopy, there's nothing preventing you from printing (and binding) if you choose. Office supply stores will do both for you.
I am with you, One reason I didn't really get into e-readers for books etc.(I pick up a lot of details when I can peruse printed books and documentation).
I still find books to be useful. After a lifetime of developing tricks for quickly locating information (by recalling right/left page, top/middle/bottom), I can flip through pages looking in the area that I expect to find the information.One reason I didn't really get into e-readers for books etc.
I am with you . I like something printed to doodle on. My solution is a little different. With every project, I know there are going to be sections of the DS I need and those I won't need. I just print as needed from by Brother HL-2770DW printer, staple, and keep in a separate folder. Paper is getting so darn expensive... BTW, that little cheap printer replaced a much more expensive HP LJ4101mfp that is built like a tank and weights almost as much. Wish I could sell it and not have to pay to have it hauled away.I've been able to get Kinko's / FedEx Office to print and bind the PDFs into nice books. When they had problems with the copyright notice, I could usually get them to do it explaining what the document was, available free on the internet etc.
More and more though, I just put the manual up on a 2ed screen or iPad and print the few pages I need to noodle through a particular section. The Brother HL-L6200DW is a good, cheap, fast duplexing laser printer for this sort of thing.
But yeah, I feel your pain.
I recall when I was a teenager (in the UK at that time) ordering a complete set of Fairchild semiconductor data books, like 8 or so. I didn't expect these to arrive as I was not a "real" company or anything just a teen.I am with you, One reason I didn't really get into e-readers for books etc.
By the late 90's manufacturers had tended to drop all, or most, printed matter, I am glad i kept most of mine.
When also a teenager in the UK. mine was Radio Valve Data (transistors included) first pub. 1949. I still have the copy, albeit a little tattered!
