    wait –wouldn’t the difference be he *would* be looking down at a smartphone?

  • Bluejay

    Reminds me of the conversation we all had about “cultural stagnation” a couple years back.

    While I was watching Steve Jobs, and looking at the late-’90s iMacs, I thought: Why would you make a computer that looks like a giant gumdrop?

    And I think I still have one of those iMacs somewhere in my apartment.

    Why would you make a computer that looks like a giant gumdrop?

    Because no other computer looked like one? I thought it was brilliant.

    Everything high-tech today is essentially a flat shiny rectangle. Kinda getting boring. We need more giant gumdrops in the mix.

    I want designers to bring back ultra-retro items, like flapper skirts and bowler hats.

  • Bluejay

    I want designers to come up with things we’ve never seen before! :-)

  • Danielm80

    Me, too. And I want them to accessorize them with bowler hats.

    The not looking down is what would make him out of place. It’s interesting how not particularly “’80s” the costume is, though.

  • bronxbee

    oh, i see — she’s talking about ’80s marty. my brain has ceased to function today. three geek errors and i’m out of the game today.

    It’s probably not a *good* thing, but I pretty much dress the same in 2015 as I did in 1985.
