Predictions about 2000

Weekend Magazine predicted what life would be like in 2000 in their July 1961 edition. They got some things wrong: "You will be whisked around in monorail vehicles at 200 miles an hour and you will think nothing of taking a fortnight's holiday in outer space.". But others were closer to the mark: "You'll have a home control room - an electronics centre, where messages will be recorded when you're away from home. This will play back when you return, and also give you up-to-the minute world news, and transcribe your latest mail." which sounds like the Internet.
