They Said It

  1. 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.

    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.
