Hi Carlos - thanks for the comment. I mentioned print ads in the section on Printers.

"The same goes for B2B trade publications, as they will all move to online formats. Consequently, the print advertising support that kept them afloat will dry up -- after all, you can't click on a magazine."

Curious, why isn't print advertising on this list? The other points are spot on in my opinion.
