How do you think that smartphone got in your pocket? If you follow the history, who had the vision and determination to create the future? Many would think Apple, but it was actually an Apple offshoot, General Magic that laid the foundations for the always-on world we live in today. This documentary tells the story of a gang of dedicated geeks who set out to create the future and their fate at the hands of Apple and others. You’ll see some familiar faces and a glimpse into how the future was shaped.
