- Year 2000 Problem
- A problem that worried just about all software
weenies but didn't affect their sneakers.
- Year 2009 Problem
- Something that caused all vintage television
sets in the United States to become obsolete for over-the-air broadcasting. Full-power broadcasting completed the switch from the 525-line NTSC standard the
Baby Boomers watched to the
ATSC A/53 (DTV) standard
in June 2009.
- Year 2038 Problem
- Something that rocket scientist
software weenies have to worry about in the future: the
CCSDS time standard
rolls over its coarse time counter.
- Young People
- (under the age of 25 are so) are the traditional prime
customers. Some are such fanatics that they memorize the
of their favorite sneakers.
- Your Reebok
- The Reebok custom design service; same idea
- The group of people with enough money to buy any
they want but no great interest in them. They basically need two pairs: one good enough to
work out in the gym,
and a pair of kicks just for
fun (like Chucks,
K-Swiss, or Tretorn).
