General Magic

Sponsored by Paul and Robyn Metchik

Before the Web, before Google, before 3G, General Magic shipped the first handheld wireless personal communicator in 1994. Spun out from Apple in 1990 to create the “next big thing,” its employees gave birth to ideas that now dominate the tech industry and our daily lives – from that first smartphone to social media, e-commerce and emoji. Although the company didn’t survive – right idea, wrong time – it’s one of the legends that define Silicon Valley. This entertaining documentary combines rare archive footage with employees’ contemporary stories. It’s an inspiring reminder on why failure isn’t the end, but actually the beginning. 93 min. USA
