Choice quotes from the 20th-anniversary compilation in NZ PC World:

Processing speeds are now fast enough to satisfy all but the most
exacting user.
-- Dec 1989/Jan 1990

Plug a 2.4kbit/s modem into your PC, jack into a telephone line
and you've got access to Compuserve, the world's largest online
information service ... Compuserve's $49 an hour is, after all,
merely the cost of two large pizzas or a taxi ride to the airport.
A free hour is provided with the $80 membership fee.
-- May 1992

It's ridiculous claiming that video games influence children. For
instance, if Pac-man affected kids born in the 80s, we should by now
have a bunch of teenagers who run around in darkened rooms and eat
pills while listening to monotonous electronic music.
-- March 2001
