Whatever happened to cyberpunk?

So here it is - the year 2016. I'm living in the future that I could only imagine back in the 1980s. But how does it measure up?
Personal cyberdeck?


Domestic robot?


All transactions conducted in Eurodollars?

Ehhh... kind of. A bit.

Direct brain interface for my cyberdeck?

Not so much.

Cybernetic arm with concealed shotgun?

Seriously, WTF? Why would you even want that anyway?

But hang on... what's this...?

How the hell did we not manage to imagine mobile phones?

The future is a strange place, but I think I kind of like it.
