The 1994 Tablet Newspaper

25 Apr

When I saw the following video I was astonished. I cannot believe what the minds at Knight-Ridder (a newspaper holdings company) were developing in 1994, and how much it closely resembles the 2010 Apple iPad. It is hard to imagine what today’s digital landscape could have looked like if the Tablet Newspaper had seen large scale production, a seven or eight figure advertising and marketing campaign, and rampant consumer adoption. When watching this, please realize that it was not until roughly 1994 -1995 that the adoption of the internet in its most basic form had taken place. Knight-Ridder was so close to owning a revolution… Watch this and be amazed!
