When you think of something that has been around a while, you can’t help but consider words like dependable, effective, and time-tested. On the flip side, newness brings innovation, advancement, and progress. Most often the new and the old don’t intersect, but when they do, tremendous things can happen. Consider reading A Tale of Two Cities in color on an iPad. You might say this combination of the old and new is too amazing to be true, and you would be right. But we think we can offer something just as good.
