1981 report about the Internet

Here is an interesting report from a San Francisco television station in 1981 about this new thing called the "Internet", and how you could download the daily newspaper, called the "telepaper", in only 2 hours at a cost of $5 an hour.

The report concludes by saying that a newspaper vendor need not worry about being out of a job. Well, the day has finally come when newspaper vendors ARE worried, after newspapers are about to start falling like dominos. We are increasingly getting our "telepapers" news via the Internet, while lucrative print ads in newspapers are drying up as subscriptions to the paper versions decline.
