Submission + - Tablet Newspaper c1994 (paleofuture.com)

djl4570 writes: "Paleofuture has an interesting video of a tablet computer envisioned by an Information Design lab founded by Knight Ridder in 1992 to bring the newspaper into the electronic age. This video is an interesting look at early tablet concepts in light of Apple and Samsung litigating over Tablet related IP. The video looks like a promotional video for internal use or to woo investors. It is surprisingly prescient for an era when we were running Mosaic or a beta version of Netscape and that many of us were using third party software such as Trumpet for a SLIP connection.
Of course this video does not foresee paradigm changes such as the massive expansion of the Internet which gave us sites such as Drudge, the explosion of blogs or the corresponding erosion of trust in the main stream media."
