I loved the 90s. I mean, as much as I loved the 80s, I probably love the 1990s more. I really came of age in the 1990s. I graduated high school, got my first car, started going to college, grew my first beard, and lost my virginity. That’s a lot of big milestones in one decade. I did mention I lost my virginity, didn’t I?
These ads that AT&T did in 1992 show us a world in which the 1990s kept going. Yep, we’d have new technology, but it would be 1990s technology… in the future!
Couple of points: 1. Funny how AT&T really didn’t bring you any of the things that actually came true. 2. Got to love paying for the toll by reaching for a card and swiping it in a reader while going through the toll area at about 55 to 65 miles an hour.
Oh and the quality of the futurist commercials is a tad low, because they were on a CD-ROM that came with an issue of Newsweek. Newsweek thought that magazines would switch to CD-Roms. Oh, if only we could live in a perfect world like that!
