iPad offered for free instead of newspapers in a Croatian coffee shop

Croatian Times

Newspapers are a thing of the past in a coffee shop in Split, Croatia after owners are offering the free use of iPads.

Visitors of The Box coffee shop can read their daily papers and news websites online as of Thursday as the part of the new technological departure.

"We have always been a modern coffee shop and we thought realised papers are on the way out and that our guests want to see more modern things coming in. The first reactions today have been great", the spokesman Josko Palada has commented.

Newspapers are usually offered for free in almost all the coffee shops in Croatia's tourist regions. In some of coffee shops you can even find British newspapers.

The owners of The Box have secured the iPads with a device that will immediately alarm them in case a client walks out with an iPad.
