I love it! Kind of reminds me of old movies of people driving around Model T Fords.

We still don't have comics on the online newspaper websites!

I love it! Two hours to get the entire newspaper... over the phone... after it's programmed in by the journalists.

Possibly the coolest video I've ever seen.

"Richard Halloran - Owns Home Computer"

His neighbours must have been so jealous.

Bonus props for the rotary phone/modem combination.

To me, it's nostalgia.

I remember my excitement when I got a 300 baud modem for my C64, and I could dial up BBSs and exchange files. And that was after the time of the video.
