Popular Mechanics: Don't Blame Us

NEW YORK, Dec. 9, 2004--Those co-workers who constantly clutter your inbox with e-mail forwards aren't the only ones who have fallen for a recent Internet hoax involving a fictitious 1954 POPULAR MECHANICS article. It appears two savvy software CEOs have also been taken in by the Photoshop handiwork of a Danish software designer.

A manipulated photo of a mock submarine console (above), passed off as a 1950s projection of the 2004 home computer, was used by Sun Microsystems Chief Executive Scott McNealy in his Oracle OpenWorld keynote speech yesterday in San Francisco to illustrate how rapidly technology improves. And this past fall, Lotus founder Mitch Kapor posted the image on his blog before later posting a correction.

Even we scratched our heads for a minute after first seeing the graphic. But after a closer look, everyone agreed that something wasn't quite right. More research revealed, much ...

This is true, either people are using more building blocks or they are using different ones such as the latest high-powered Macintosh. "Prairie Fire" has fallen in the ratings because of the race to have the biggest and the best.

Yes, I had seen more Mormon missionaries then I have IBM types, though I rather prefer the latter. :-) They are getting out of the personal computer game, manufacturing wise in the very near future. Too bad.

Yes, but do you have white-shirted guys w/ crew cuts, pocket protectors, & thin ties running about?

Neil, those folks don't allow us speak English! ;-)

I did like to see the Cray computer. The University of Nebraska has one of the most powerful computers in the country. It uses distributed computing, with a Linux like operating system. Each unit has two processors in it, and you put them together like building blocks. Each block is like a high-powered IBM computer. I have seen, "Prairie Fire" a couple of times -- it not only has a lot of computing power, it also has a lot of blinking lights -- the important thing. :-)

This is what a real computer should look like, except not enough tape drives and flashing lights. The moderate computers are completely boring.
