William Gibson's words change meaning over time

"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."

1980s: Flickering Grey.

1990s: Bright Blue.

2000s: You can't tune a digital TV receiver to a non-functioning channel.

2010s: Tune? Surely a dead YouTube channel just shows the last uploaded video?
