QLINK IS BACK IN THE HOUSE!
For those who don’t know the history, America Online began as a dialup online service for owners of the Commodore 64 home computer. It was called QLink and was owned by Quantum Communications, which remained as the name of the company well into the AOL era.
Now we just need a revived PC-Link for all those Tandy customers.
If you’re about my age, you grew up with an endless series of school science movies, narrated by soporific baritones, with muzak/porn 70s soundtracks, introduced by professorial types in their studies. Disney did them, everyone else did.
In a wonderful homage to this, Sega has made an ad site for their game “Full Auto” called Sega Labs.
They have the whole thing down, even the slightly out of sync sound and bad cuts. Plus, explosions. What’s not to like?
No, I’m not making that up.
It’s like we’re back in 1972 and Edie Sedgwick is dying again. Or Jim Morrison. Or both.
And of course, the movie of her life has already been made and comes out in November.
