As 2010 ends many look back over 2010 and ahead to 2011.I thought it might be interesting to see a series of ads from AT&T in 1993 that looked ahead at some of the technology we might one day see.Many of the predictions are products we take for granted today such as the Kindle, electronic toll collection and GPS.By the way, I think they need to slow down a bit going through that toll lane.
