This Flashback Friday from 1970 is a promotional video from AT&T introducing their new “Picturephone Service.”  The devices are clunky, and the picture quality is horrible . . . but what’s fascinating is that they pretty much nailed how we’re using Zoom right now.  Business meetings, family gatherings, and guys apologizing to their girlfriends for being late.
