PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I've seen it so many times in the movies and TV: a person wakes up in this futuristic world, walks by his kitchen, and a computerized voice is telling him that someone is calling him. But instead of picking up a receiver, the call is actually a video-call, and his TV is used for the conversation. If you put 2 and 2 together, this is not really that futuristic. Having a camera attached on your TV, and a VoIP SIP or Skype connection with it, is not mad science. So why don't we already have this on our TVs?

It makes me think that most of you just can't stand the idea of being active during the night and sleeping during the night.
You prefer the bright nature of the day.

I guess I'm one of those who likes to look at the stars, and hear the sound of owls. I'd give my right arm for the ability to shop, work and chat at night.
The problem is that it's people like you, afraid of the shadows, that fuck it up for people like me too. [sic]
