Share price listings in newspapers

Don’t you agree that share price listings in the newspapers are bit anachronistic? In this day and age of realtime stock quotes being beamed into browsers, mobile phones and television sets, who really looks up the stock listings in the newspapers?

You can make the same points for the news too. News is also served in realtime now over various delivery channels. Infact online news can be personalized, so that I get to see only the news that I care about.

So the question is, should the newspapers be done away with?

*I personally like the feel of browsing through the morning newspaper with a cup of tea, though I look up my stock prices online.
