MediaTech: Visions of the Future [PIC] [VID]

In 1910 French artist Villemard envisioned the future in a set of postcards.  Here are a few related to media technologies.  This is what envisioned for the year 2000.

Villemard 1910 - En L'An 2000 - Correspondance Cinema - Phono - Telegraphique
"Correspondance Cinema"

Villemard 1910 - En L'An 2000 - Hearing of the Newspaper
"Hearing of the Newspaper"

Villemard 1910 - En L'An 2000 - At School
"At School"

I wonder how far off our visions of the future are?  How good are we at predicting future tech?
