Marketplace Scratch Pad

Something called the "Internet"

This is one of those great time capsule moments. It’s a clip from NBC News circa 1994, a time when you needed a duffel bag to carry your “mobile” phone, and the Internet always had the words “It’s called” come before it. Only Tom Brokaw can do this justice.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon put it together:
