The 1984 family is interacting with each other and actually enjoying it. But that's because they don't know what they're missing. They'd be much happier if they were looking at Mr. T's Instagram or reading the latest tweets from Ronald Reagan.
If this trend continues, pretty soon everything will be an app. Think you're reading an article? No, this is actually an app. Are you pregnant with a baby? Nah, you're pregnant with an app. Are you eating chicken wings? No, it's an app!

Running is good for you, but it's also a lot of work. And in the '90s, you could go for a run, and the rest of the world might not even know about it. But now, you can get all the credit for running, without even having to do it! The future is here, and it's amazing.

With a gumball machine, you have to find a quarter in order to feed the kid a wad of artificially flavored sugar. With WiFi, you don't have to spend money, and you get the kid to stare at a screen instead of banging her fork while she waits for food. So maybe things today aren't so bad after all.
