Who knew the future and technology of the past would be so bright? I just came across Paleo Future, a blog dedicated to the future that never was. Highlights include some amusing AT&T promotional videos and some Apple technologies that clearly never took off. Remember AT&T’s 1993 “You Will” ads? Who knew AT&T was so good at predictions, even if they weren’t the sole provider of such technologies?
In general, I guess people just never stopped to think, “hey, this video conferencing gets really awkward since you have to maintain eye contact to remain polite!”.
