A video from 25 years ago points both backward and forward.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL At this point, we all know that we live in the future. The vast majority of human knowledge is available for free on the Internet, everything from computers to cantaloupes has some sort of touchscreen, and the Washington Nationals are the best team in baseball. Truly, this is the age of wonders.

Every future, though, has a future. Time is linear (or so it has been explained to me), and tech companies are always looking forward to see what the wave of the future is. Fortunately for them, they often (unlike sci-fi writers) come close to the mark. Let's take a look at some of the predictions that are being made today about tomorrow (and at one that, unbelievably, came true).

It might be a stretch to say that Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) is a company in crisis, but it's certainly facing some pretty tough decisions. Rival chip-maker ARM Holdings (NASDAQ:ARMH) has been presenting compelling alternatives to Intel's chips to server makers and hardware companies; Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) already uses an ARM chip in the massively popular iPhones, iPods, and iPads; and even longtime Intel ally Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has announced that it will sell a tablet powered by an ARM chip.

So what can Intel -- a company whose chips were once so ubiquitous that "Intel Inside" used to be a given -- do to restore the public's belief in its future?
