Did these guys get an advance copy of my novel?

To be honest, I didn't expect smartphones or e-readers to be this common by 2012, and I didn't expect broadband to be fast enough to stream movies by now either.

We'll have different toys to occupy our time, new technologies to make life easier, new technologies to clean up for us because of the messiness involved in a more convenient life, people will live longer, there will be a few dozen billionaires and the everyone else, and people will be hopped up on medication to correct all the damage done to them by living in the world.

So, a bit like now, only more so.

I would like super-powers, please.

/Or access to magic, that would be fine too.

One step closer to somebody becoming Adam Jenson or JC Denton. I'm totally cool with this.

You already have access to magic. The downside is that rabbits and doves are expensive as balls.

It sounds like someone at the Pentagon who finally got promoted to colonel has dusted off the notes
for his SHADOWRUN campaign in college.

I'll have some of that cyborg stuff please. Particularly the eye implants and A.R. stuff.

Apparently nothing in the future will help with lazy headlines though.
Seriously, taking the article's headline AND the teaser line of the article and just pasting them together?

I, for one, welcome our new cyborg overlords.

/ I cannot believe that there were only 3 seasons of the Jetsons (1962-1963 and 1985-1987). It seemed like that show was on all the time when I was a wee little lad, but the episodes must have repeated very often with only three seasons of episodes from which to draw.

My grandparents remembered a time without electricity.

My parents remember a time without the internet.

I will remember a time before prosthetic augmentation and cyberization.

My children will remember a time before the widespread use of nanotechnology.

Will their children remember a time when humans only lived on Earth? I hope so.

There has already been one.

It's alright, though. Could've used one or two more.

3-D printing will have hit its prime when I can download an unauthorized design file from the Pirate Bay's server aboard the Aaaar6 satellite orbiting at Earth-Moon Lagrangian point L1 to print out my own graphine Shelby Cobra with a Mr Fusion 2.0 power module.

You'll have to pay extra if you want the brand names in cybo-tech.

what would be the most popular - terminator eyes ( terminator 1 scene where u have the round eyeball with the red light behind the mechanical iris

or the cylon eye, a red bead of light swinging back and forth like a metronome. great for the hypnotism on the fly.

Don't forget a pirated copy of Jessica Simpson to wash it and a burger to eat while she's doing it.

Though printing of arteries or simple organs may be possible by 2030, bioprinting of complex organs will require significant technological breakthroughs."

Right now I can print pictures of boobs, by 2030 I'll be able to print actual boobs.

Progress!

My bunk....
