Heh. "What the wife selects on her console will be paid for by the husband on his..."

That's awesome. I love how frustrated the guy looks when he's looking at the bill his wife racked up.

This is hysterical. I love the "subtle" acting when she's interested in something, and the husband should win some kind of award for "best indication of frustration in a filmstrip"!

the thing that strikes me the most about this is how remarkably close it is to today ... a far cry from camera phones and flying cars, this is nearly on the money predicting:

* the internet
* online commerce
* in-house observation
* email

the most interesting omissions here are:

* no sense of entertainment within the system itself

* no underlying concept that it's all being driven by computer, or something computer-like

what's more impressive is this isn't a pitch by a specific company or consortium, but rather an at-large guess.

full marks. great post.

it makes me want to go out and see old episodes of "the 20th century" and "the 21st century."
