You know, this is – for the most part – strangely accurate. “Police computer-fraud squads” sound like the dreamy technological fantasy of an eighties-era Imaginationland, but we really do have those now! Their officers are probably not as sharply dressed, however. Why did people think, three decades ago, that we would one day revert to dressing like Fonzie, anyway?

  1. Heh, I’m not sure why the cyberpolice are wearing helmets like that!

    This reminds me of a book I have called Future Cities that was published in 1979 and makes bold predictions about the future such as that in the future will have flat screen televisions (this came true) and robot servants that bring us drinks while we’re watching television (that hasn’t come true, yet, dammit).
