If you're old enough to remember printing off banners on continuous feed paper using Print Shop and a loud dot matrix printer, you may be as shocked as I am right now.
Shocked by what?
I'm glad you asked. Two things, really:
- The age of printing your own banners is long, long gone. If you had told me back in the late 80s that after the year 2000, banners would be something of a lost art? I'd have laughed at you.
- Broderbund, the software company that made Print Shop is still around! Broderbund has been in the PC software business for over 20 years. Few companies can make that claim.
I wonder what other stuff we use frequently today will seem just as... quaint in another 15 to 20 years.
Speaking of which, why are keyboards still the primary interface? Aren't we supposed to have something far superior by now, not to mention flying cars?
The pace of technology is so... uneven!
