    Microsoft 2019

    trip had this in his comment in ventrilo, it's a concept video from Microsoft about what 2019 might look like...

    Microsoft Office Labs vision 2019 (montage + video) - istartedsomething

    there's two videos at the above site, make sure you watch the second one, as it's the full five minute version...

    when the coffee cup gets cold, I hope it alerts my secretary/wife/mistress automatically to get her ass back in the kitchen and get me a refill.

    So when do we all start wearing the silver boots and the one piece jump suits?

    The Phone, Boarding Pass, and Credit Card are straight motherfuckin ballin (part 2, still ballin)! I am glad to see Microsoft envisions a future of no fatties, and we are all a bunch of executives able to afford technology costing who knows what up the wazoo. IDK, I think this might be a bit ambitious. However, if they can do this now, they I wants it. Where do I send the blank check to?

    most of the handheld stuff depends entirely on e-paper, and they're getting close on that. Storing the diff credit card numbers and info is easy. same with boarding pass / gate info.

    the phone is probably trickier.

    future visions are rarely cheap. No one wants to see Vega in a one-piece jumper wallowing in street filth while Craig flies by on his iScooter talking to a 3-dimensional Joe being displayed in front of his head.

    I foresee Craig traveling in a germ free iBubble (made by Apple of course).

    It felt sooo iRobotish haha, but does anyone get the feeling that almost everything in this future contradicts the need for each other, if everyone has a special little panel thing that can do everything what is the need for a slightly larger then that does everything or a foldy one that can pretend to be a newspaper when I can just look at the news from my special two piece phone that also does everything?

    and obviously in this future strafeRight will be a living self sufficient microsoft counterpart of Craig

    Quang electronically penetrated that bitch with his keys.

    I think the Credit Card is feasible right now. Not in the sense that they did it, but in another way possibly. At least an information card such as car insurance, health insurance, etc...stuff that doesn't really need to be scanned.

    I also notice in these type of videos, there is never any food. Only large tables with a million chairs and one coffee. IT'S THE LAST COFFEE OF THE WORLD!
