You'd think that by 1995 anyone could see the writing on the wall. The WWW existed, browsers and e-commerce were in their infancy, and millions of people had personal computers.

 

With regards to the newspaper prediction: oddly enough, the New York Times website went online just one year later.

Check out this sad Hot Wheels computer straight from the '90s where it belongs. It's almost as cute as all those ugly beige box computers.
