Introducing the Icon Accessor 3000!

Your guess is as good as mine, folks!

Maybe it's an oblique commentary on the very reactionary Tea Party wing of House Republicans? (I.e. -- they're as outdated as reel-to-reel tapes?) OK, that was a stretch.

How about a paen on Antiques Roadshow?

Anybody else got an idea?

  1. I think it's a reference to the modern information storage method known as the cloud. It seems to be a post-apocalyptic return to earth sort of scenario were a wealth of culture is lost because of there being no way of accessing the cloud without technology contemporary to it. Of course I'm just guessing here. There's no actual way to interpret something that's this deliberately obtuse.
