GENERAL MAGIC MEMORIES
Remember Magic Cap? Probably not, in this age of Palm and Windows PocketPC (didn't this used to be "Windows CE"?). But guys like Bruce Barrett and Richard Doherty (via Tony Fadell) do.

Just for fun, click on the links provided on Barrett's page for General Magic and its former partners. It's amazing where some of them now point to; for instance, the old www.genmagic.com URL now points to, curiously, OnStar Corp.'s login site. I guess OnStar parent General Motors bought up the company's assets after everything went bust. Goes to show how some ahead-of-the-curve ideas live on.
