    He’s not in this one, but just think what Oliver Wendall Jones could do with the computers of today.

    The Banana 9000 Jr. has a steep learning curve before it takes over the world. In its way stands one brave penguin….

    An Iguana? Perhaps he should step over to Fox Trot?

    And we have all seen Silent Running, yes?
    You can’t be an eco-person without seeing that movie.
    Nor a fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey (same cameraman).

    I immediately thought of HAL. Yeah, it’s ‘old,’ in the early ‘80s, the dot matrix printer was the printer to get. 9 pin printers were only $250-$500. I later got a 24 pin—pretty hi res for the late ’80s-early ’90s when the prices had come down.
    Opus kind of set himself up, didn’t he?

    Notice the picture over the couch depicts Opus in the exact same position.

    I remember this. The “Banana Jr.” was mocking both the Apple “Macintosh” and the “IBM PC Jr.”. Does anybody here remember the IBM PC Jr.’s commercials? They had Charlie Chaplain in the commercial.

    Opus had a noble an’ eloquent statement of defiance going there – but he took it one step too far…

    With today’s computers, Oliver could probably rule the world via computer from his room (with his teddy bear at his side).

    Good catch! I usually see the little details, but I was distracted by the conversation.
