Flipphone in 1973. Can FJ get more stupid?
User avatar #4 to #3 - fightforfate (09/04/2013) [-]
he meant cellphones in general
User avatar #5 to #4 - moribus (09/04/2013) [-]
1. No, this is not an OC, someone else meant this (and a repost).

2. So why put flip phone as example if he ment something else?
#22 to #5 - norville (09/04/2013) [-]
probably used a flip phone because it looks the most like a star trek communicator

An our iphones are PADDS now

Maybe it was supposed to say 2003, idk
User avatar #85 to #3 - bronybox (09/05/2013) [-]
And the picture quality.
Seriously FJ?

Yeah? The PC tablet was ****** , they tried going too far into the future too fast just like they tried with the Xbox One and its DRM.

Tablet devices are older than most people here... people just think that everything apple does is "new and innovative"
User avatar #37 to #7 - xtrim (09/04/2013) [-]
Yeah that still doesn't change the fact that flip phones came way later than 1973, that's what he was referring

But the tablet PC sucked balls
User avatar #86 to #73 - sinclairr (09/05/2013) [-]
come on, don't thumb me down.

Be honest, did you ******* buy a PC tablet?
User avatar #94 to #73 - danielesq (09/05/2013) [-]
indeed it did, but anyone can see where the ipad come from
User avatar #72 to #67 - nightroller (09/05/2013) [-]
That looks more like a PDA. Could it go on the internet?
#91 to #72 - thatoneguyfromtv (09/05/2013) [-]
It had a web browser and an email app, but right, it resembles a PDA, though it is much older tech than what we were capable of making in the last decade
User avatar #93 to #91 - nightroller (09/05/2013) [-]
Wait, did the Microsoft Tablet PC have touch screen capabilities? If not, then apple wins the "handheld computer" title

"Predicting"
#57 - sephirothpwnz (09/04/2013) [-]
even though microsoft thought of the pad in 2002, jobbs is still put there.......
User avatar #34 - zpryed (09/04/2013) [-]
im going to be wrong on this but didn't microsoft come up with the tablet a few years before apple did
#84 to #34 - freakyorange (09/05/2013) [-]
Actually, no. Apple had something tablet-esqe in 1983, just never released it. Pic is it.
User avatar #97 to #84 - zpryed (09/06/2013) [-]
does it count though if they never released it and that kind of looks like it could be like a laptop prototype
User avatar #35 to #34 - gunslayer (09/04/2013) [-]
Yes. But nobody gave a **** .

#49 to #35 - howaboutnsfw (09/04/2013) [-]
I phrased my first comment weird...

There were other companies who made tablets before Microsoft
People gave less **** about those

No way that cellphone existed in 1973, back than cell phones where gigantic machines.
User avatar #24 to #10 - Lambda (09/04/2013) [-]
I think that meant to say 93 or 03. There were not cell phones in 1973, not even car phones.
#12 to #10 - norville (09/04/2013) [-]
I don't believe that is a cellphone from 1973 thats just when cellphones were invented
User avatar #14 to #12 - fosforgasxiii (09/04/2013) [-]
But tablets existed before 2010.
#15 to #14 - norville (09/04/2013) [-]
Yeah but most people don't know about the Microsoft tablet they believe Apple invented it so that is a research failure.
User avatar #16 to #15 - fosforgasxiii (09/04/2013) [-]
That must be it. The creator of this post probably thinks that Apple invented the smartphone as well.

Entire picture is wrong, star trek had viewscreens in 1966 not in 1988. He didn't do research on ANYTHING.
User avatar #20 to #15 - iceeyboi (09/04/2013) [-]
damn, I was to late. also, we had videocomm "long" before 2008.. the maker of this content clearly didn't do his/her research....

>Implying the iPad was the first tablet
User avatar #88 to #41 - huskycreeper (09/05/2013) [-]
The first good tablet.

2001 space odyssey had tablets before star trek

Google Glass in 1999? Try 1989.
#40 - grubbug (09/04/2013) [-]
or maybe the developers of such devices grew up and thought, "wow, wouldn't that be helpful in real life" and then developed said devices?

From now on, I vote that all T.V shows involve holographic, downloadable, and customizable women. That can interact with objects, and are FULLY rendered.

Speaking of things we weren't ready for...
It had online play, internet browsing, DLC, and we rejected and shunned it...now look at where we are in gaming now.

Star Trek didn't predict the future; many of these inventions were inspired by Star Trek.

I wonder if this means they will never find a cure for baldness
User avatar #18 - ishallsmiteyou (09/04/2013) [-]
or INSPIRING? I mean, **** , they're making engines that can power craft to light speed and they're calling them warp engines because of star trek.
User avatar #83 - WMDxVeLoCiTy (09/05/2013) [-]

User avatar #69 - weirdoo ONLINE (09/05/2013) [-]
Not trying, inspiring

It's almost as though inventors and innovators don't just lube up their fists and pull out new, revolutionary ideas randomly. This is sarcasm or something.

Normally, sarcasm via text is represented by italics
