Tech Talk: Freesources

WORLD WIDE WEB-For Halloween, we thought it would be fun to watch the scary-not-scary movie Pulse. In it, Maddie (Kristen Bell) is startled to find that her recently deceased boyfriend is still sending her messages via email and text message. This film might be a new classic for its depiction of technology novel at the time. All the characters carry flip phones, mobile devices around after pagers but before sophisticated camera lenses were added to the mix. Voice and text messages only. And they were probably charged 10 cents for each text! It was a simpler time, 2006.
