Depending on your perspective you have a chance at owing a.) an unremarkable set of doorstops, or b.) one of the last (thoroughly unremarked) pieces of history; Encyclopedia Britannica is ending its ‘dead tree’ edition after 244 consecutive years.
An online subscription costs around £45 ($70) per year and the company recently launched a set of apps ranging between £1.20 ($1.99) and £3 ($4.99) per month.The company said it will keep selling print editions until the current stock of around 4,000 sets runs out.
One of those final 4,000 sets can be yours for the nominal sum of £890 ($1,400).
What else you gonna spend the cash on – a third iPad?
