It’s hard to believe that someone envisioned tablet PCs 18 years ago, but a dusty video clip from 1994 shows us that there were, in fact, technology visionaries before Steve Jobs (insert “ironic grin” here).

It's called star-trek. They had tablet computers back in the early 90s, too. Captain Picard always listened to his classical while he read his kindle.

Pretty interesting! Some spot on predictions there. In reality the tablet became a bit smaller than they envisioned and strange that they didn't really predict downloading content via the Internet, but instead envisioned smart cards as the delivery medium.
