In the early 70s, science fiction films had become serious business if not serious box office. After 2001: A Space Odyssey and Planet of the Apes, major Hollywood studios made sure their sci fi movies either had a social message or altered consciousness. It took one movie to change all that – and not the one you’re thinking of.

This concluding episode we’ll be looking at a couple of real-world examples of what you can come to expect from the future of digital media, and how to best prepare for it.
Of course like all modern trilogies, there’s the potential for sequels. If you have questions or if there are new developments in this area, Digital Fanboy is the friend who will either explain it or tell you you’re better off not knowing.
In Episode 1 we talked about the benefits and additional features we get from electronic media. The terms we hear and what they mean.
