Darn it, I could have sworn there was an example of computers in the way we use them now, but I can't think of it. I'll ask my father, whose knowledge of the Golden Age is better than mine.

There were, I think, a great many authors who imagined *part* of it. I recall many stories in which every home had terminals that brought all the news and entertainment combined. But they always seemed like fancy televisions rather than all-in-one communication devices.

I loved the Heinlein juveniles! As my father notes, his juveniles are much better than his "adult" novels. (I liked those too, but...yeah.)
