Its not deniable, facts are facts.

Extrapolation is not "fact". It's well informed guessing at most. It can be wrong.

So, in the 90's, I would turn on my computer, get on line. Go to start or an icon on my desktop and open a browser to surf. Content was generated by html that was either static or generated by PHP/JAVA/Flash. I would browse information sites and social sites and download media. And today? I do it faster. Yep, big difference.

Now, go back another ten years and you see a huge difference. No browsers, no widespread internet access, BBS's with local phone numbers rule the day. Win3.1 if you're lucky.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
