Viewtron!

For fans of such things, there are some videos on the AT&T archives. Sadly not any good hi-res 'reach out and touch someone' adverts that I have found yet. But I bring you:
Viewtron! http://techchannel.att.com/play-video.cfm/2012/2/27/AT&T-Archives-Viewtron-Videotex-Sceptre
A view of 2003/5 technology from 1991, which would have been interestingly prophetic had it been done about 20 years earlier (as I often say about True Names) http://techchannel.att.com/play-video.cfm/2012/3/7/AT&T-Archives-First-Born
and http://techchannel.att.com/play-video.cfm/2012/3/9/AT&T-Archives-Neighborhood
Plus AT&T adverts for the 100th anniversary of the telephone (really, of course, 'don't split us up, let us keep our monopoly' http://techchannel.att.com/play-video.cfm/2012/3/12/AT&T-Archives-100-Anniversary-Phone-Jubilee-TV-Spots (no mention of Theodore Vail, the Bill Gates of his day).
