  1. In Back to the Future II, Doc Brown and Marty McFly piloted a tricked-out DeLorean time machine to travel from 1985 all the way to the future, 2015. Arguably the best movie of the trilogy, it presented audiences with a...

    Apple hardly introduced fingerprint technology. But other than that a fun read.

    I though the 1985 movie was a load of trash when I saw it way back when so I highly doubt I'll waste any time on the remake.

    I dunno, you've got me there. I don't follow the movie scene at all or watch any movies, I'm just not interested in that but what I saw in the article (which admittedly I casually glanced at) I automatically assumed the were making or have made a sequel. Sorry about the faux pas.

    Flying Cars? Geezzeee .... how many times has Popular Mechanics and Popular Science showed that one? They have been around since before 1940 but every time the same MAJOR obstacle ... how many people are willing to get a pilots license in additional to their drivers license? A lot easier to make than to sell ..... but still cool.

    And that my friend is the key.

    There are enough people that can barely drive a car now your gonna them to fly a car lol.

    If it were ever a possibility the restrictions would be so tight it wouldn't even be worth it. Half the people dreaming for this think they will just go to a dealer and fly the car off the lot.

    The only way this will be possible is with automated flight control.

    Odd. For the record, what is filtered out of my post above isn't dirty or considered a curse word. Just a very common phrase for someone who isn't very smart.

    Not so odd. Also, calling members such names will tend to get your whole post filtered. :)

    Because I've gotta. Just kidding, I misunderstood the article because I never paid much attention to it then opened my trap. I guess we've all done it before sometime in our lives. ;)
