Re: #2- Warning Shot
You know how ridiculous the 70s looks to us now? In the future, people looking down at their phones will look even more ridiculous.

Re: #2- Warning Shot
Alas, one way in which fictional futures are very like the real future is that they are served "family style", and htere's something of everything on the table, rather than "a la carte" where you get to pick the ones you like.

I think the endpoint will probably be when enough machines recognize you wherever you go so that no one carries a device at all anymore; you just speak to the air around you and a virutal terminal appears on any workable surface. But while I'm pretty sure we'll reach that point, I'm not at all sure it will look like that when we do -- or that we'll stay with it.  Technology and people often seem to be competing for unpredictability, which is part of what makes this writing about the future thing so bizarre.

Re: #2- Warning Shot
Can I please have the interactive walls without the hackable drones? I could go either way on the cats.
