Apple predicted its own future!

Apple created a video to showcase a digital personal assistant. You can speak naturally to it, asking questions about the weather or having it set up meetings or alarms for you and it'll  figure out what you're trying to say and intelligently respond to what you're trying to say. Sound familiar? No, we're not talking about Siri, one of the new features of the new iPhone 4S, coming out on October 14th.

These features come from a video that Apple produced in 1987 showing a futuristic interface, with a full virtual butler on screen. The best part about this? According from the information on the video, it takes place on September 16, 2011! This means that Apple predicted it's own features 20 years ago with only a one month margin of error!
