That console is so cool. I know my $20 remote is probably more powerful than that prototype console. And my iphone definitely is. But sitting at that console you are not just making entertainment choices you are the captain of a spaceship.
Did you catch that opening byte about "free time." Assume that is what he was talking about just before this segment. What happened to all the free time and leisure that was to be part of the future. 4 day work weeks and retirements at an early age never materialized for the middle class.
And it would be nice to have some of that optimism and excitement about the long term future? Is there anybody influential today talking about how cool things are going to be 34 years down the road like Cronkite was in 1967?
