Attention Time Travelers: Your iPhone may not work in 1990

I knew there was a reason I didn’t throw out my Motorola MicroTAC 9800X!

I was bored and trying to find something to watch on Hulu when I saw this:

I thought you’d get a kick out of it, apparently going back in time 17 years totally screws with the iPhone.

Wow Colin. You know, I’ve been bored before, but I guess I’ve never achieved the “Let’s see if there’s any old Journeyman episodes on Hulu” level of boredom before. Of course if any of us went back in time 17 years the first thing we’d do is try to find a way to buy as much Apple stock as we could… unfortunately we would die of Facebook and Twitter withdrawal long before we could figure out how to invest without the internet.

    Time travel screws with it so much it moves the home button to the top of the iPhone too.

    last i checked the home button was at the bottom of the iPhone. apparently thats different in 1990 as well…

    Why is the word “travel” in my comment turned into a hypertext link ad? I hate you for doing that. I really, really hate you for doing that.

    “You’re”?? C’mon – this is a media site, right? :)

    “old journeyman episodes” – there was only one 13 episode season. it was a good show. travel

    I hate all you huluans, we can’t watch it in Europe!!!

    And the bigger picture…this just proves that the iPhone does have bluetooth capabilities. Well, unless this is just a T.V. show…and this is all meaningless…carry on.

    @Rob I don’t get your iPhone bluetooth reference. I owned the first iPhone and now own the iPhone 3G and both have had bluetooth capabilities since day one. I also have the Apple-made bluetooth headset for the iPhone…

    it was a pretty decent show … but come one TV directors…. get it straight, Home button on the BOTTOM!!

  10. Could you please NOT post USA ONLY ACCESSed video clips.

    Your site is access all over the world…

    Be considerate to your ENTIRE audience.

  11. Patrick says:

    Could you please NOT post VISUAL video clips.

    Your site is access all types of people, some of whom cannot see.

    Be considerate to your ENTIRE audience.

  12. Time travel also would mess with the iPhone gear as well ….imagine!

  13. Considering I live in New Zealand and therefore I live in the future it turns out Hulu doesn’t work in the future therefore I can’t see if the iPhone doesn’t work in the past.

  14. Je Ants says:

    Could you please NOT post content that uses FLASH.

    Your site is access by people who may not have a FLASH.

    Be considerate to your ENTIRE audience.
