“År 2000 var allt möjligt i framtiden”

Forbes framtidsvision från 2000 om hur datorer skulle se ut tio år senare:

The result is a computer that is far more reliable, cheaper, and more compact—the entire thing, believe it or not, is about the size of a Frisbee—than the all-electronic solution. But above all, optoelectronic computing is faster than what’s available today. How fast? In a decade, we believe, you will be able to buy at your local computer shop the equivalent of today’s supercomputers.

Sånt här är alltid rolig läsning.
