Vintage Video Shows Internet-Like Interface for Online Shopping in 1969

Vintage Geek: Fingertip Shopping on the Internet in the '60s

This vintage video of the "Internet" in 1969 plays like a so-sexist-it's-silly scene from Mad Men. When describing the eventual conveniences, they point to online shopping — undertaken by the wife — and then establish that the husband then pays (complete with the man of the house shaking his head at the purchases). Dee-lightful!
