    Brilliant to present something "futuristic" and frightening with an old-time/familiar figure from the past. I heard the name of that mime once but forgot it – he was amazing.

    @richardmaudsley77
    Those computers were considered "state of the art" in 1986. Now, even a little netbook or tablet has a lot more computing power than that 1986 IBM.

    This is great. The man who portrayed Chaplin in this is named Billy Scudder. He actually won a number of awards for this and other IBM ads. Just wanted to clear that up for people like @TheJediCharles who this this is a woman.

    To think that 23 years ago, that was "advanced technology". Wow.

  33. tygersflowerz says

    I didn't even hear of the internet until about 1995 or 1996. You must be a real tech geek, huh? lol

    J/K!

    Well… I imagine that the internet, back in the '80s, would've been hard to explain. Who could've imagined it's full capabilities? Even the people explaining it back then probably didn't know what the internet would be fully capable of.

  34. Sean David Van de Riet says

    Not for charts and games and other things!
