Smart house of the future.

Smart house of the future. Yeah!


some of the things you see in old sci-fi movies are in use today and computers are doing more with VR , remember when computers were complicated now smart phones cars electronics in the home are even more confusing and are advancing faster then we can learn to use them !!!

The first computer I used

The first computer I used took up the entire wall of our work area.
Now look at today. Watches, phones, etc... with computers in them.

And look at me talking on this screen to you and thousands of others at one time. A long way from party lines.

A long way in such short time, well maybe it wasn't that short as I am getting older each day.grin

What nonsense!

We have periodically seen this type of mass futurism marketing. The 1893 Colombian Exposition, then the Gatsby Roaring 20's. Here's the 1939 World's Fair http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0184038/. And the latest cliche' for the Home of tomorrow: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/20/technology/building-toward.... In fact it's usually the same story at the top of Stock Market speculative cycles. Remember the World Wide Y2K celebrations?

So who is this corporate advertising/diversion for? Wall street speculators? The new arrivals?

(Notice how there is no mention, indication or visualization of all those problems [issues] both domestic & international [bla-bla-bla] that would drive this thread O.T.? Back then this type of messaging was known as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda It still is today, just not fashionable to be identified as such.
