Apple's Grey Flannel Navigator (Part 1, 1988)

The video above is part 1 of Apple's futuristic concept video Grey Flannel Navigator. It was produced in 1988 and has a tone similar to other videos we've looked at by Apple and AT&T. There are three parts to this rarely seen video, so stay tuned. Many thanks to Keith C. for this great paleo-future find.

Interesting that the voicemail inbox thing is only just happening now with the iPhone.

Honestly, this is one of the best paleo-future predictions I've seen on this site - email filters (got it), voicemail on the computer (got it with skype, iPhone), and even ordering pizza on the internet (look at most big pizza chains online).

Cool find.

I find it curious that he is able to interact with his computer using voice and sound only when dealing with messages, not with an interactive call. The fact that he had to pick up an old-fashioned handset after listening to and leaving voicemails using his computer display seemed a bit out of place.

Isn't that a Mac LC? If so, I thought the LC was introduced in 1990...
