Did MTV Predict the iPhone 39 years ago????


Wait, did MTV predict the invention of the iPhone 25 years before it was invented? Earlier this week, we were talking about the 39th birthday of the network which launched on August 1st 1981 (remember, back then it was more like a radio station than a TV network, airing music videos 24 hours a day). While trying to find footage from the original launch, I ran across a clip of Mark Goodman, one of the original VJs talking about an invention called the iPhone.

The best is at the end of this clip where he says "we're about music, not iPhones...YET".
