I wonder is San Junipero all that company has to offer, because while it's certainly preferable to nothing, it's not really my style.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I don't doubt it. That was a big server warehouse, and it can't all be San Junipero at every conceivable year right back to the birth of popular music.

The sky above the port is the color of television tuned to a dead channel.

Funny things is that the forward of the book Neuromancer they go to great lengths to discuss that cyberpunk may have grown from the book, but that it was all just a bunch of marketing crap and pseudo-pop-culture. It also discussed that modern generations would not know what that color of a dead channel would look like today, in the digital age.

That's a bit of a stretch, it's not like CRT TVs don't exist anymore. You can be young and still know what static is. Maybe in 20 years people will forget, but even then, there are people who keep them for video games and stuff like that.

The one I find funnier is the two sticks of RAM stashed under the tempurfoam mattress in the pod hotel.

Honestly I don't think it's much of an issue. Just the next logical iteration of the classic scifi stories where they have Faster Than Light Travel and also slide rules.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
