This concluding episode we’ll be looking at a couple of real-world examples of what you can come to expect from the future of digital media, and how to best prepare for it.

In Episode 1 we talked about the benefits and additional features we get from electronic media. The terms we hear and what they mean.

Digital Fanboy is our exploration into digital media. How we use it, how it uses us, and how to get a better handle on everything.
