From 1910, and some one hundred years in the making, iPhones

Wednesday, 18 August, 2010

Writing in 1910, Robert Sloss spoke of a device he called a “wireless telegraph”, which was capable of performing an array of functions similar to an iPhone or iPad.

In what was a truly inspired and long-sighted article, Stoll predicted the wireless telegraph would act as a mobile telephone, music player, camera, would be able to access newspapers, and could also connect users to their bank accounts and allow them to perform transactions.

This all happened in 1910, or is some time traveller having us on?
