Microsoft and Intel announced Monday, March 11, 1996 that they are going to push for better hardware standards to make audio/video phones over the internet more available to the public. Forget about tax breaks. No Long Distance!
Here is the prediction for the Internet in for the Fall of 1996:
The killer app will be Internet Audio/Video Conferencing.
There will be millions of naysayers who finally get with the program once they hear that they can Phreak too. Online banking is great and the WWW is fabulous, but free long distance and video conferencing is the killer.
As we speak our long distance providers are trying to squelch this movement. Check out the VON Coalition and see what you can do to help.
Dont forget, you heard it here first: Killer App.
