This is a fascinating news report from 1981. A look at the possibility that news could one day be consumed via computers. This includes an interview with a gent who’s titled as “Owns home computer” and a very telling end from the reporter about it not being a threat to the 20cents addition just yet. Looking at this report from a 2010 perspective makes this comical in places…saying things that seem so obvious now.
It makes you wonder about the things that are being talked about now (and the things that will come out over the years) will be viewed in the same way in the future. Things that seem far fetched or uncomfortable now will seem like common practice in the future.
