"You Will"

Sunday, August 26, 2007 | 06:00 AM

Fascinating discussion over at Prof Farber's Interesting People list:  How accurate were those AT&T "You Will" ads  back in 1993?

Here's what I can spot in these adverts:

On Line Books
Onboard Navigation Systems
Tablet PCs
Mobile Wireless Computing 
EZ Pass/Automated Tolls
Movie Ticket ATM purchases
Video Conferencing
Voice Recognition
Health Cards/Chip Implants
Video on Demand
On Line Education
Video Phones

The only thing the ads seemed to have really gotten wrong was that AT&T was NOT the company that brought it to us --instead, it was Apple, Cisco, Garmin, Microsoft, and others.

But AT&T? Not so much . . .
