Why current hardware (laptops, desktops, note pads, iPads etc.) will be obsolete very soon:
I don’t like the idea at all…
First saw that video a couple years ago. Made me want to invest in Corning, but their financials made me rethink it. They’re too difficult to predict for my glancing perspective.
I’m still mad they stopped making a type of glass perfect for telescope mirrors. Now we have to buy Russian. 😦
Imagine how the next generation will laugh at an iPhone or a Kindle Fire!
In the year 2525….
everything you think do and say, is in the pill you took today
The “pill” I took tonight was a traditional bowl of vermicelles, a Swiss treat: crunch up a fist-sized meringue (preferably from Gruyere) in a soup plate, and then using a ricer, press out a mound of chestnut puree (made with roasted chestnuts, sugar, cream, an a dash of Kirsch (cherry liqueur)), and then top it with some whipped cream. Pressing the chestnut puree through the ricer makes it look like strands of vermicelli, hence the name — oddly, a name for a dessert given by the Italian-speaking side of Switzerland for a dessert from the French-speaking side of Switzerland.
So if “everything I do and say in in the pill I took today” — then I am a saying that I am really, really full and will probably have dairy nightmares when I go to bed.
some of that so has already come to pass

How many of us remember that song and scoffed, not even being able to visualize the year 2005, much less the predictions in this song.

I’m going to resist that future. That kind of future also makes becoming a hermit, living off the land sound better and better.
This makes me like the Amish more
Almost, but not quite. I will still need to be able to type, on a real keyboard. (Touchscreen typing is fine for text messages on my phone, but there’s no way I could get real work done that way.)
My laptop will be indispensable for at least the near future. 🙂
I’m just curious about how much the retards in DC will screw it all up…..
I’m sure special cetifications will be required, then there needs to be licences to speak or arrange you photos, oh and let’s not forget the looking, touching, watching, enjoyment, convience, and ownership taxes that must be paid… ya;know… for the kids.
They’ll unionize every aspect of it – betcha!!
Or much worse…. probably…
I actually read a lot of this some time ago. There is a lot of merit to what he writes.
I would be content to go back to the fifties. I am 66 and, without a doubt, it was the greatest decade of my life. We have been on a down hill roller coaster since then, including the destruction of the Constitutional Republic.
May God help us all, even those who don’t think they need His help.
All throughout the campaign and I heard someone say Romney was taking us back to the fifties, I hoped there was some truth to that.
Most people were God fearing, family meant Mom, Dad and kids. Most people lived in houses they could afford and sized for their family. Almost everyone worked hard to support their family. Life was simpler. Some of the best music came out of the 50’s. I’m a Father knows best kind of gal. As my mom would say smut didn’t invade my living room. 3 channels was good as folks didn’t sit in front of the tv all day to watch 3 channels and it was better for advertising as well because you had to get up and turn the channel which had another added benefit of someone had to get up off the couch and turn the channel. If my television can be turned without a remote, I haven’t been able to find it.
Less electricity was used because fewer people had air conditioning and most felt lucky if they owned an old water cooler/swamp cooler.
People act like the 50’s was such a horrible time, with the exception of air conditioning none of that doesn’t sound so bad to me and even the air conditioning I could get used to again.
You said; If my television can be turned without a remote, I haven’t been able to find it.
Ain’t that the truth. If the cable remote goes bad. well you are stuck on that channel until you get a replacement.
I was thinking about buying one of the new flat panel TV’ with prices at less than $200 for some decent models. Well, I ain’t thinking no more. I already pay for expanded basic cable TV but the new TV sets require an extra charge.
Good job on remembering the way things were but I would add that families ate all of their meals together. I consider that an important part of our lives. Does anyone do that today?
We also had “family worship” one night each week, and “Son, Don’t you dare even think of violating the Sabbath.” That also meant no fishing or hunting.
I agree Jordan and yes, some families do eat meals together. Home cooked meals in fact.
My family eats dinner together every night at the kitchen table and we start by saying grace and thanking God for the food we are about to eat, that my husband has a job, and ask Him to watch over our military. We pray for others and we ask God for His continued blessings on this country because we truly do need it today.
All phones are off. We eat Sunday dinner in the formal dining room together using the good china because we are important enough to each other that we place the same value on family as if we were entertaining guests.. Then we all help clean up and have a little family time before bed.
Ours may not be a typical family which is sad, because I truly feel that IF people would take the time to make this one thing an every day a priority I think we could begin to rebuild this nation because it was destroying the family unit that got us in this mess. And it is getting worse the more “advanced” our technology has become.
I look at some technology as I do our our national debt. Paying for programs with tax dollars start out as good ideas much the same way the internet can help us find information quickly, or a washing machine can free us from hard labor of scrubbing clothes on a wash board. Like the national debt though, giving 99 weeks of unemployment, cash for clunkers, money to green companies, and other programs the government handouts veers off so far from the “help” they were meant to be, that the eventually cost far exceeds the convenience or help it was meant to give us.
Instead of enriching our lives we can become a slave to these “advances” that they end up owning us instead of us owning them.
If want to fix this country we have to “clean up our own back yards”. We have to strengthen our families and that requires starting with simple things like turning off the TV sharing a meal together. Not just too feed the stomachs of family members but the soul as well.
Indeed, those of us who work for a living, have become slaves to our own damn government. Blacks have a new kind of slavery.. they belong the Prog entitlement society. So we now also serve the entitlement folks but I sense a new “civil rights’ movement coming. All of the talk lately of the coming race war is spot on and I only hope that those who still have ‘”white guilt” will get over it and move forward so that we can become FREE again.
Family values still exist but have become “out of date” to many of the Progs and minorities. Most people that I know in the South still eat meals together and turn off televisions and phones. Giving thanks precedes any form of eating food.
We are called old fashioned but I now love that label.
As long as OI can still write my Sinators and Congress-crook by touch-typing with my middle finger it’s all right with me, Cap.
The internet will be watched and censored, the first amendment dead, The United Nations in control no one will want to use a PC anyway while they are freezing and starving in the coming Liberal paradise.
