AyeRight travels back in time to 1981

Just as Dan Dare and Tomorrows World (Both references only suited to older readers) showed us the future, who would have thought that an electronic newspaper service was around in 1981
but it was as this this YouTube video shows.

You can just imagine the cynics rolling around laughing at the idea that anyone would want such a service.
Admittedly it was clunky and slow back then, but how we wish a certain local newspaper might catch on 28 years later!
I’m sure it’s just a passing fad and local newsprint will be around forever more in its once a week format?
