They make the internet seem like it would be a device only adults use. Like it had no entertainment purposes at all....like a calculator or something :-P. I`m glad they were that far off in the prediction. Otherwise, I would be looking at some payments by my parents right now :-/.

This is actually not the internet per se, but the 500 TV channel cable system concept that was popular in the 80`s. In that era the commulation device was a TV rather than a PC and after the advent of the internet the whole experiment petered out.

In 2100, we`ll be seeing today`s commercials. Think how they`ll laugh at us. It`s sad. =(

yeah, that "communal service agency" sounded like something lifted from Ayn Rands "Anthem" or Orwells "1984"

The one from before was about a futuristic kitchen, not this. Unless there was another one before that:P

I like how he used a little pen to write the e-mail or whatever instead of a keyboard

We should be teaching forward thinking skills to our youth instead of drugging them up with Prozac claiming ADD and perhaps they future may not suck.

the phrase "communal service agent" sounds pretty communist for a video made in 1967.

I laughed at the part where it mentioned how the man of the house would check all the purchases and they could only be applied and sent by him

:)

well.. i guess not all dreams come true

Odd how back then the ideas seemed so crazy, but now in one way or another all the things they said have happened.

Although we don`t actually need hundreds of consoles cluttering the house up. Microprocessors ftw!

"What the wife selects on her console, the husband pays for on his console."

Ha! How right you are.

I`ve seen this before, it`s part of a longer video about the predicted future, I believe.

I love watching those things. Sometimes they`re so ridiculous...

The best part of this was the look on that guy`s face. The little wife, spending his money. It was awesome- she spends, the man is going to handle debiting his money... it was so stereotypical.

Wow, I think it`s awesome. I love that sort of thing though. I can`t believe how accurate yet how far off it is, rather amusing really.
