“They will grow up in a world where physical storage of information is as outdated as rotary-dial telephones and mimeograph machines are now.”

And good riddance. I’m glad the next generation will not have to suffer through physical media (or paper, probably).

Perhaps in my children’s lifetime, all these products will be reduced to their most elemental forms: a simple glass display to see things, with some small speakers to hear things. The future of media and tech devices is not how many things can be packed into a given size, but how much can be left out.
