"It wasn't until I was past forty that it bacame clear that I was going to be quote, successful, unquote."
The vizzy refers to a telephone with video output. I've been hearing about the paperless office for about forty years now; people always seem to want temporary copies that do not require some sort of technology to support (i.e., paper output).
Sure, you might suggest that they could have glasses that used a GPS link and a heads-up display to guide the wearer to the destination. Or maybe get in a car that was smart enough to find its own way. Given the poor record of the "paperless office" in the past, however, I wouldn't want to bet against the vizzyprint.
