Wasn't 1981 Adorable?

Oh, what a cute modem! OMG - two hours to download a text-only version of the SF Examiner! The sad part is, I don't know how that modem worked, and I don't know how the wifi particles floating around my house rematerialize in my MacBook as funny pictures.

There was a time when we could understand the technology we were using. Those days are over, and I find that a little disturbing.

But not disturbing enough to go back to 1981.
