Apple’s personal assistant of 24 years ago
Apple rolled out Siri on Tuesday, the personal assistant program that uses a sort of artificial intelligence.
And it bore an uncanny resemblance to a product Apple daydreamed about 24 years ago in a 1987 video. The video even predicts when this would be in use: September of 2011. Yikes. Even looks like the dude’s using an iPad. Double yikes.
