Title: Dated technology
Posted: February 09, 2007 (06:58 PM)
This was a video sent out to promote Windows 386, probably before some of you got out of diapers. It does make me wonder what people will think of the technology we're using now. Just look at the future as imagined by movies like Forbidden Planet, Logan's Run, or the dozens of cyborg movies in the '80s. Man, even Hackers is looking kinda sad (not that it was too great to begin with). I still remember my Mom's comment about Super Mario Bros. for the NES, "It looks so much more realistic." It seems silly now, but just think about how those same words get retooled year after year as previous games get more and more dated. Someday, our kids will be making fun of our Ipods, cell phones, and PC's with only 2GB's of RAM. It seems like technology is the new fashion.

*The 7-minute mark is where it really gets good.*

When she started rapping, I wished I was using Linux as my OS.

Yes, that was even sadder than the "How to prevent yourself from being robbed" video I had to watch when I was training to work at McDonald's. I didn't think that was possible. Thank you, Microsoft!
