Back in the old days, when people got their tech news from stacks of paper stapled together called “magazines,” Popular Science was a nerd’s dream. It was full of all sorts of exciting things, had less nudity in it than Omni (Note: This is not a good thing but your parents would buy it for you), and let you dream of jet packs. This is not to say that that old stalwart PopSci isn’t still around, but back in the old days it was our only lifeline to the world of high tech.
Now we have blogs and Internets and all that stuff but if you want to relive the old days head over to PopSci’s online archive complete with iPhone support. As Charlie Sorrel writes, good luck getting any work done today.
