    Sometimes technology assists us in ways the designers hadn’t thought of.

    I hope that pencil doesn’t snap under Lio’s weight.

    Another good use for the Laptop 9000. YAY for real “hard copy” books, too! Wise choice, Lio.

    SOME DETECTIVE WORK

    In the first panel, the laptop reads “Laptop 9000”. At the last panel, he’s reading a book entitled “K is for Kubrick”.
    Sort of a nod to the1968 (and often lampooned) movie
    2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by the late Stanley Kubrick..

    Buying a Laptop PC instead of a Notebook PC is like buying an icebox instead of a refrigerator. There’s quite a difference.

    Little bit of Trivia….where the name, ‘HAL’ came from.
    Find each of the letters of the alphabet that come after, ‘H’, ‘A’, and, ‘L’

    Lio knows to point the computer’s camera away from him! It can read lips!

    Sorry, no. Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001, said: As is clearly stated in the novel (Chapter 16), HAL stands for Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer. However, about once a week some character spots the fact that HAL is one letter ahead of IBM, and promptly assumes that Stanley and I were taking a crack at the estimable institution … As it happened, IBM had given us a good deal of help, so we were quite embarrassed by this, and would have changed the name had we spotted the coincidence.

    “2001: A Space Odyssey” was a land mark in SiFi movies. The previous one was “Forbidden Planet” in 1957 and “Star Wars” after in 1977.
