PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless

Remember the curved phone from LG, the LG G Flex? There's actually truth to its name. Not only does the back cover 'heal' from scratches, the phone itself is actually, honest-to-god flexible. It bends without breaking or damaging the phone. So yes, this device may look silly - but the future is peeking into the present here. Quite amazing.

The future we were promised in the 80s, was dystopian ... we either had robotic Arnolds after us, live televised gladiatorial events, corporations were running the world and while people's brains into robotic cop suits.

A lot of brains have gone missing, but they didn't turn up in robotic cops sadly.

ED-209 was much cooler anyway.

The future will never come because everything cool that gets invented/discovered, gets absorbed by companies who would rather keep us dependent & selling us outdated crap.

Well, they were action/thriller movies. There wouldn't be much need for action or thrills in a perfect world with awesome robotic penguin butlers.

But that future isn't interesting.

At least they got that right.

Watch the Running Man, the show itself looks a lot like the X-factor .... 2 out of 3 ...

robotic Arnolds after us

Well, we don't have T-1000's, but I'd say the more economical killer drone does the job just as well.
