No, but I intend to do so
No and I don't think I will
Abandon hope. Sigh, not that anybody will recognize Dante either.
As for the books 1984 and Animal Farm, I have read them both years ago, but when I bought my ipad, I bought the digital version of both.

I remember adding a 1 Mb RAM stick to my computer, then using RAMDisk because DOS couldn't use the extra memory correctly.
It's the data synthases from all the electronic information that concerns me, not the information itself.

My high-school cut 1984 from the curriculum and instead we read the bible.
I read the book and thought it was okay, I don't really get the hype and although it slightly accurately represents what the US is like today. I think it mirrors more what London is like. Honestly, I think everyone knew already that our phones could be tapped at any time, and every email we've ever sent is in some massive database somewhere. That's why I gave up on running for president a long time ago.
The idea that Orwell intend 1984 as a prediction of the future is simplistic at best though and calling it prophetic laughable. While you might be able to identify similarities with some of the equipment involved in the novel and in our society today, the politics which was the core of the novel is much more complex and diverse than a direct comparison could encompass, be it of today or of 1940s Europe, which was a direct influence on much of what Orwell wrote.
Big brother was watching you but in the book it did more than watching you, it totally and completely interfered with the lives of the people in the book. It controlled their lives totally, free choice was a figment of their imagination, PRISM might mine your data but it does not control you or the free choices you are able to make. That is the big difference between the book and the reality that we find ourselves in.
