Future numbers, letters and idioms

Spacegear GLX POVI WP-3000

Weird brand and idioms encountered in Lisbon and Seoul.

Why do I blog this? it makes me think about the use of certain letters and idioms that made people think about the future. Numbers like "3000" (now that 2000 is in the rear-mirror) and letters like "X" are still employed nowadays to give a futuristic touch. Reminds me of this quote by Douglas Coupland: "he thinks the future will be like rap music and computer codes, filled with Xs, Qs, and Zs”.
