Picture phones are kind of like casual jumpsuits. Both technologies were perfectly mature by the 1970s, but for some reason we tend to think of them as things that will be widely adopted in the not-too-distant-future.
I would be pretty thrilled if jumpsuits came back.
Just remember to eat Liquid Chicken because it don’t promote a solid movement. Remember what happened to Elvis.
Whenever I see picture-phones, I’m always transported to the phone booth in 2001: A Space Odyssey, where William Sylvester’s daughter tells him she wants a bushbaby for her birthday.
When will someone produce a land-line phone adapted to send and receive text?
