The Fantastic and Troubled History of the Video Phone

quote [ Being able to see the person on a call is something we take for granted. Skype, FaceTime, video conference software and similar applications are just a routine part of modern life.  However, once upon a time, the idea of a “video phone” was pure science fiction.  The notion that we could actually SEE the person on the other end of the call was something from The Jetsons, not reality. ]

I read this after just waking up, so I have "ouija board" by Sharon Needles stuck in my head instead.

The only fix it to listen to the whole song on repeat for an hour or so.
