Yeah... some of that looks fabricated. Too funny to be true kind of thing. The keyboard looks out of place to be dated 1964... <br><br>--<br>http://www.stevenkimband.com/

Photoshop, yep, that was my imppression too. Look at the paper, the TV, the KB, and even the guy. Still a good joke, but unlikely to be the prediciton of 40 years ago. Also, if they were to predict a computer back then, it would have been for the year 2000 to make it an even number.<br><br>_________________________________________<br>You expect me to sign here or somethin?

this is definitely a FAKE because, while FORTRAN was created in 1954, it wasn't commercially available outside IBM until 1957.<br><br>geez... I programed FORTRAN last spring in one of my computer classes... I don't like working with languages older than my dad<br><br>-Matt<br><br>

FORTRAN was the standard language taught in beginning comp sci courses back when I was in college. I still remember doing the punch cards and debugging by going through reams and reams of printer paper <br><br>

FORTRAN is still the best language for doing mathmatical work. It all comes down to storing of matrices by column first, then by row. C is the other way around. While C seems to make more sense, it's faster for most matrix calculations if the data is stored by columns.<br><br>
