a twinkle in father technoligy's eyes
How are you today?
I was reading an articles and I found difficulty understanding this sentence.Can you help me?
Ten years ago,If you missed one episode of the TV serial,that was it.hardly anyone had a video recorder and ten years ago,freeview boxes (and repeat viewing on digital channels were little more than a twinkle in father technology's eyes )
What does the sentence in parantheses mean?does it mean rare or s.th that happens a lot?

definition from thefreedictionary:
when was a twinkle in father's eye - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
In this passage it means " freeview boxes and repeat viewing on digital channels" did not exist in father technology's days.
I hope it may help.
