In this video, Steve Jobs debuts wifi to a crowd at an Apple event. (I initially saw it on the Consumerist.)
At the 55 second mark he carries his computer away while looking at “CNN Interactive” and the crowd goes bonkers.
He gets a standing ovation for using the Internet without cords, something you can do at McDonald’s today for free.
The craziest part is that this was in 1999.
That’s only 15 years ago.
A technology people thought was borderline voodoo, something worth a standing ovation, is now so common place that when a hotel doesn’t give it to you for free you’re frustrated.
Change is coming. For all of us.
What we gasp in awe at today will be commonplace tomorrow.
Innovate or disappear.
