Apparently Teletext was going to kill Newspapers, circa 1980.

Via Business Insider, a fun look back to 1980 when Teletext, combined with television was supposidly going to kill Newspapers.

In saying that it does show some of the pre-cursors we have to technology now, such as Video Disc Machines (a vastly oversized DVD player), VCR’s with timers (MySky) and Gaming Machines.
