How long does it take for a dream to come true?
According to Apple, around 20 years..
Here’s the kicker, though. Andy Baio of Waxy.org noted, “The date on the professor’s calendar is September 16, and he’s looking for a 2006 paper written ‘about five years ago,’ setting the year as 2011.” September 16th, 2011. So, twenty-four years ago Apple predicted that there would be a magical, touchscreen device, that could do video calls, that would have a digital assistant you could interact with, and that would pull down data from a massive network (*cough* TheCloud *cough*)… and they were only eighteen days off? That’s fucking crazy.
