"Doc, it depends on whether you're referring to a particular technology, or the idea of a device that could present text in a convenient, handheld device. Hugo Gernsback thought about the idea of a device that could receive transmitted news personalized to the user in 1911.

"A newspaper clipping service involves the reading and clipping off of certain important news items. These items are then sorted, catalogued and then sold to businesses. These businesses then use these clippings as a research tool in their marketing efforts. Businesses also use this information to keep pace of what is going on around them and also to keep an eye on their competitors. "
