Logos...the Word

Since we were talking in class about "Logos", its meaning as "the Word", and the religious overtones that this term sometimes carries, I was interested to read this article on the various versions of "the Word" (ie the Bible) that are now available. What made this article particularly intriguing was the element of remediation in the story. At what point does a Bible (ie "DVD Bibles [that] include reenactments, maps, pictures and other visual el­ements") still stay a Bible? Some denominations refuse to recognize translations other than the King James version. I wonder what they would think of multimedia scripture?
