The Null Device
The latest casualty of the rise of the internet and digital media: the print edition of the (full) Oxford English Dictionary
; it comes in 20 volumes, weighs a third of a tonne, costs US$1,165 and, unsurprisingly, isn't selling very well, given that OED provides all its content in a subscription-based web service. As of next year, there may not be a paper edition at all.
