"Has the Web lived up to the wide-eyed promise of the early years --
circa 1995? Heck, no. My desktop doesn't talk to my toaster, and I can't
download the Gladiator movie and a Russell Crowe inflatable doll in half a
second. I don't check my stock quotes using a broadband chip implanted in
my femur, which also washes my car." From a (funny) report at Business Week.
