Quite magnificent piece of CGI.
John Lewis Christmas TV ad, a tradition in the UK.

None of the animals in this ad are real, they are all CGI, including Buster the Boxer.

Someone had a lot of extra time on their hands:

Play the following video full screen and drag your mouse about the video. :slight_smile:

Then again, like how 3D requires glasses, this is something that is best suited for a VR headset.

For the true CD Freak back in the day, a 15-year old IBM laptop that could be configured with two internal optical drives. :cool:

Jump to 14:30:

//youtu.be/xyBBwHL3g9c

Jump to 13:30 to see it configured with two LS240 drives, which could read and write 3.5" 240MB magneto-optical discs (SuperDisk) in additional to traditional 3.5" floppy disks.

1954 TV programme on how to dial a telephone number with a rotary phone. That was the time when they were in the process of migrating lines from operator based dialing to direct dialing.

This was also a time when lines were often shared, basically no more private than chatting in a shopping mall.

The dial tone was there to tell the user that the line is free, something we take for granted now.

Just for fun…

A 1998 video on web browser plug-ins - Seemed like every website required a different plug-in. :astonished:

No idea that you could backup your data on VHS :smile:


#522

^ My brother had one of those VHS-backup cards in the 1990’s. I think he only used it once to backup his PC’s 2GB hard disk. The backup had several corrupt files, not really surprising with VCR’s intermittently producing the occasional zig-zag artefacts.

For anyone wondering what happens if you put two Amazon Alexa’s in close proximity…
Gave me a giggles fit. :laughing:

Makes for a rather odd Turing test :biggrin:

One of the most beautiful car advertisement. This is way so cool. What do you guys think?
