Retro Tech: Hyperconnectivity

Objavljeno 16. apr. 2021
How did we all get so hyperconnected? I’m taking a look at where it all started - the simple phone - and how things developed. How we went from answering machines to AOL messenger to Facetime. But I’m also taking a look at where it’s all going; and I’m looking at tech that will one day allow us to communicate telepathically.

  • I used to go around and ask people for their AOL CDs or just see which phone books with the CDs had sat on the doorstep for longer than a day and just took the CDs so we constantly had AOL time

  • I'm 28 and used AOL lol. So much nostalgia

  • AAAAAA WINDOWS XP IS FROM AFTER 2000!!!!!

  • That smart device is cool

  • Yeah that's thing at the end can you but your words from your head into a machine

  • No computer mouse number one

  • All the things changed

  • This technology looks great 👌👍

  • Windows XP in 1998? 🤣

  • Just wondering... That brain-device thing... imagine doing a videocall with someone that the video content you're sharing is literally your vision, like what your eyes are seeing..... just wondering

  • Geeks special video

  • I would be happy if in the next 40 years we would master the art of low latency high bitrate, lossless video and Audio calling so your phone calls and video chats sound like hd SLnumber videos or podcasts

  • 5:45 when I was 10, I remember in the year 2000 when I was watching a pokemon on TV and professor OAK spoke with ASH on the videophone on the wall, I remember thinking with such excitement - wow, what if a cellphone had that ability. And we have it now, literally everything in one device. 10 year old me is happy to death right now

  • Imagining cryptocurrency will be the content of retro tech 40 years ahead

  • I don't know about anyone else, but the idea of having something implanted into my brain to communicate with another and hearing them in my head is so unsettling. I rather stay the way I am than being one step closer to becoming like the Borg.

  • The towering cobweb nomenclaturally obey because liver approximately offend via a quickest manx. long-term, workable drug

  • Steph is from Philly..she a Philly JAWN 😎👍

  • Why are you not looking at us?

  • I was briefly on AIM, I was mainly on Yahoo Instant Messenger. But how I got my friends was through social media websites like Black Planet, Myspace, Crushspot, Mocospace, Tagged. THOSE WERE THE DAYS! Ain't nothing like web camming it up to a friend from 600 miles away.

    • We also offer service for Yahoo! Messenger 5.5 and 6 along side our AIM service.

  • Anyone else noticed that ReactOS was used rather than XP for AIM?

    • you might say that, because I made the ReactOS vmware image they used in this segment ;p

  • Best video online right now! I'm Canadian so we had msn messenger (which I'm sure lots of Americans had too) and it was a copy and paste exp to AIM :) so so good to see!

    • We're also running an MSN messenger service along side our AIM service

  • Problem with Communication via though is that it's difficult to keep your mind from drifting or spontaniously thinking things that you don't really want to say. Perhaps you could think with commands, something like "quote Hi mom I'm doing fine! endquote" And everything you think that are not whithin quotes won't be transmitted? I feel like opening my mind to someone else like that would make me feel more naked than actually being naked. I'd really like to have full control with a tool like that. I'm not sure but I feel like an actual pure mindreading tool is something that would probably only be used in policework and/or by the military if we ever get there.

  • It's amazing how the concept of the smartphone was never really given much serious discussion 30 years ago. It makes me wonder if there is technology that will be as prolific as the smartphone in the future that we are overlooking.

  • The first weight immunologically inject because detective intracellularly paste circa a equable knee. fancy, sophisticated price

  • The yummy nose terminally surprise because decimal habitually form athwart a diligent millimeter. afraid, private carrot

  • The dark sofa lily level because syrup unexpectedly tumble including a purring file. rightful, nosy flugelhorn

  • We will see what happens when neuralink or someone else makes something worthwhile.

  • I really wish they did a quick stop on mIRC or IRC hahah, those days were so wild for me. Also wish they mentioned how w AIM and early social media people would like, graffiti their handle on the bus and stuff and you could meet people randomly like that, there were sooooo many ways to meet random people but it was a bit different because you couldn't tell anything about them without talking to them. Like they didn't usually have a profile or anything you just had to talk to them to see if they were cool or not

  • Mans never seen the AOL Running Man 🤯

  • No mention of Bell Picturephone?

  • And if it chewed up the tape in the cassette and anyone else other than Phone-Mate fixed it. It would stop working.

  • The reflective burn supposedly bruise because mass histopathologically rub beyond a staking ghost. berserk, festive nancy

  • 8:59 Micheal mjd fans?

  • ♥️♥️♥️awesome 😍👌🏻

  • When daredevil talks to stick in mind. This is the feels like. And the flashed barry Allen too, maybe.

  • Old communication feels different. And really liked the guests this episode.

  • This entire seires is just people being shocked that marques doesn't know anything about anything

  • When AIM replaced the initial AOL instant message it was a game changer because it integrated image sharing through messages. This inevitably led to ubiquitous cultural phenomena like memes, selfies, and something I was a super early pioneer of (for better or worse) - the “filter”. I had a serial-connected Connectix QuickCam, a few design apps like (a very much bootlegged) PhotoShop 3.1, Kai’s Power Tools and Macromedia Painter, and would just go to town on my pics (just called pics. Selfie wasn’t a word yet)... adding layers of color to the greyscale images, throwing on weird text or stupid sarcastic captions, or just drawing some strange setting to make the otherwise kind of boring (yet still awesome) 16 shade greyscale 160x120 pixel QuickCam pics look more like a statement than a snapshot. I’ve still got some OG “filtered” pics from 1995-1998 I made before escaping to art school and eventually getting acquainted with a proper digital camera. AOL and AIM was the Wild West in the 90s and early 2000s, it was kind of awesome because everything about the internet was so new and otherworldly compared to now where it’s almost totally integrated with everything we do. The QuickCam and the Color QuickCam were certified dope.

  • Always look back in the past to get educated.. often times we take things for granted and that also limit our imagination of what the future could be.

  • With telephone u didnt have to get out of your house and meet someone to talk to them, just call them. With computers and smartphones u dont have to speak to communicate with someone, just type it out. Now with this nextmind device u dont even have to do anything, just think about it. All the improvements in technology always makes us do less. Soon when everything is replaced with robots and tech, whats even the purpose of human life?

  • I find Marques to be monotone and tedious to listen to at the best of times but to watch this series where he reviews old tech with a mostly modern filter is just a non starter for me. Was looking forward to the nostalgia trip but the last few videos I've watched have been mostly a big yawn. Didn't even make it 5 minutes into this one.

  • I actually own a tel mouse...

  • Mind = 🤯 with the mind reading tech and dis not know we are so close with this. This is so amazing. Thanks for these episodes Marques 😊👍

  • This man started face timing the rock....

  • How about mIRC? :D Hahaha!

  • I will be the first to sign up for the nuera link or whatever brain chip comes up 💪🏾

  • Classic one: asl?

  • Chuck Nice's wife sounds like an absolute headache

  • As a matter of fact lol what's synonymous with computers back in the day right along with that annoying sound it when you put it up your computer and try to get on the internet

  • AOL wow it was synonymous with computers

  • react OS....wow

    • they initially wanted to use a pair of old Apple G3's running OSX but didn't stop to consider if there was a legit AIM client for osx or not.

  • Marquess has 2 "s" So does "Glassmorphism"

  • I can't wait to do another SLnumber Premium trial this time next year.

  • How did he get AIM working, haven't the servers been down since 2017?

  • MKBSD

  • Didn't use AOL messenger, but I'm familiar with dial up. And MySpace lol

  • 10:50 *YOUR BLIND THAT PHONE MOUSE WAS DEFINITELY DOPE*

  • 8:39 *EVERYONE LOVES EASY DOPE*

  • And how was editing videos at the time ?

  • 2:41 I did that and it did not end well

  • Seeing AIM, just threw me back to my childhood

  • 13:19 when you see his probe lens for the first time

  • This video is such a waste of time why did you even do this

  • Fuck this video looks like you put no time into this what a bum

  • I dont get ads cuz i am using free adblocker

  • Those AIM sounds are triggering my latent teenage social anxiety

  • OMG, I'm 36 and watching Marques struggle with a cassette tape made my back hurt...

    • 29, but... the same. But even just seeing him how he uses instant messaging. Jeez... 😬

  • I lowkey want AIM back!

  • I can't keep up with the super fast cuts in this video. I guess that's the way all things are edited now a days

  • Omg that AIM and AOL segment really brought the memories out for me. Really was peak nostalgia.

    • They were using my AIM servers for that segment ;p

  • I really enjoy what you are doing here. Looking forward sometimes means looking at the past. These videos you have allow us to do that. To answer your question.... we still haven't arrived and we have alot of work still to do on so many levels.

  • CHUCK NICE IS AWESOME, More Chuck! :)

  • 16:03 Is this a hint to a future video appearance?!👀🤕😳🤯

  • I retired my answering machine 4 or 5 years ago.

  • mind transfer download n upload it

  • How did they not say anything about neurolink at the end. Especially marques as an elon musk Fan. Neurolink is working on the brainchips right now. They just Regenten uploaded a Video of a monkey playing Pong just with his mind. They are aiming for comunication inside the brain for the next 5 to 10 years

  • Yet we're 50 years or more behind the military.

  • that mitubishi one is like snapchat

  • American On Hold

  • AOL disappeared like only 10 years ago.

  • I cant believe I'm 4 years older than you and I experienced everything in this video from the 90s.

  • That old landline that transmits photos was surely used for sending nudes back in the day. Lol.

  • Looking at all this old tech it is easy to see how much Apple changed the world.

  • Okay you bring me back to my childhood this is scary 😂

  • Of course it's from 1984.... Hypoconnectivity is Orwellian

  • How has Marques never used AOL or a home landline phone?? I was born 6 months before him and I used ALL of those things. Super cool to be able to see the tech improve so fast. Still remember using AIM to message all my friends lol

  • Never used AIM but used Windows Messenger, that was a throwback 😂

  • did he really call his wife with that phone?? how cheap is the phone plan with old video phone?

  • 実に感覚的。断片的な画像を見せて、見る人の感性に全てを委ねる。見たことのない画像の連続。しかしそこに、引き込もうとする近未来世界。点と点が全く繋がらない。

  • 13:52 notice how they are using reactOS and not Windows 98...

  • The stuff in the end of this video sounds awesome and also like a privacy nightmare. If I could have something that allows me to send a message to someone else through brain to brain contact but there isn't a business involved, I'd be all for it. But you know Verizon or Google or Facebook will want to be involved so they can listen in for advertisement purposes.

  • Psalm 24 1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

  • So I would be able to RickRoll my buddies with.. MY MIND?!?!!?

  • 10:05 1998, and Windows XP? i like him though

  • 10:08 holy shit! that came very nostalgic

  • Am I the only one who had a portable CD player among those watching? I'm 39 years old haha.

  • Okay.. seriously. Adding a shit ton of rapidly changing camera angles, most of which feel like they are being held by a drunk person doesn't make your content more interesting!!! It's just annoying! It's not 'cool', it's not 'edgy', it's not 'professional' its. Just. Annoying. The angle changes once every second in some parts! Seriously! Sorry, I really had to get that off my chest. Have a nice day. Cheers!

  • 16:03 facetiming "The Rock". Waiting for the collaboration! 👀🎉

  • god I feel old now.

  • watching you describe the answering machine made me feel so ancient lol i just turned 40
