This video is HIL.ARIOUS! and a little sad. in a funny, depressing kind of way.
Circa’ 1981 news report: “Engineers now predict the day will come when we get all our newspapers and magazines by home computer. But that’s a few years off.”
“It takes over two hours to receive the entire text of newspaper over the phone and with a $5 an hour use charge, the new tele-paper won’t be much competition for the 20-cent street edition.”
like i said. hilarious in a sad way.
