I remember subscribing to one of the online services back in the early to mid nineties, then unsubscribing, because I couldn't figure out what to do with it or what I would use it for. Now I can't imagine being without it; of course, it's a very different animal these days.

Older Americans must simply marvel at the pace of technology over the past two decades. Every time I look at my wife's smart phone, I think of Star Trek (the original series). I am amazed we have such technology in our hands, in our lives.

But I think this is a much more interesting example. It's also especially uncanny in some of its thoughts on the future.Thanks for sharing your thoughts and also i watched the video which is here in this post,..

Maybe not as funny, but I think this is a much more interesting example. It's also especially uncanny in some of its thoughts on the future.

'We can't fault there highly pain TV personalities too much.' How is this sentence meant to read?

A lot has happened in the last SEVENTEEN YEARS. I can't remember the first time I used the Internet but it wasn't more than a year or two before that, I'm sure. Even then it was a telnet prompt on a DEC VAX. This clip predates Windows 95, to put things in context.
