Arthur C. Clarkes Predictions
In the May 1970 issue of Popular Science magazine, Arthur C. Clarke predicted that satellites would someday "bring the accumulated knowledge of the world to your fingertips" using a console that would combine the functionality of the photocopier, telephone, television and a small computer, allowing data transfer and video conferencing around the globe.

I want to post this youtube from 1976 showing Arthur stating some of his predictions.
This is, of course, before the invention of the world wide web and mobile computing.
Not only does he list the types of devices, but also some of the impacts of using them. Quite visionary.
