I actually saw this video back when it was originally produced at a meeting at the local Apple office in Tampa (long since closed), and I remember thinking, “I wonder if we’ll ever really have stuff like this in our lifetime?”

Of course, there was no way for anyone to know back then that what we were looking at was a version of what would eventually be released as Siri. :)

Start from the 1-minute point for the demo of what they envisioned as “The Knowledge Navigator.” Now, I just mentioned Apple, which means this will quickly turn into a comment war, so to divert your attention briefly from that, how about people who shoot HDR photography, huh? That’s not “real” photography, right? ;-)
