"The General Magic unit will have a radio on it?" I ask.
"Yeah, it’ll be like a Sony FM Teletouch - it has an FM radio in it, with subcarrier reception so it can get the data at the same time," says Bill. "And what’ll happen is, you’ll be buying music directly from a specific direct-mail CD place and they can afford to discount - no middleman, so they can afford to sell it at half the going rate, I can buy $7 CDs instead of $15 CDs. And you know what’s cool for the radio station? The radio station gets tagged, because this device knew what station you were listening to, and what time. So in your order, they include the information, and the CD guys can send a fee over to the radio station to subsidize them for playing it.""
In its early days General Magic radiated a lot of excitement. It had a very nice interface that obviously drew upon Bill’s HyperCard and Andy’s Mac interface, with the unmistakable graphic imprint of Susan Kare. The basic screen looked like a desktop with various tools; on the desk was a postcard that one could fill out and send to anyone.
Bill explains that the starting point was HyperCard, and from there they built a telecommunications interface: “The first concept we latched onto was Telecards, something dropping out of the sky and landing in your pocket.”
"Bill spent our first week working on it, and we had a postcard that looks very much like the one we’re shipping today," says Andy.
"Andy made a little server on the Macintosh," recalls Bill.
"Within three days of having the idea of wanting to do a service, we had a HyperCard mock-up on the Mac with little Telecards and a server going that actually sent the mail," says Andy. "Then we came up with one of our seminal ideas - rubber stamps with semantics."
"You want things to be emotionally and visually appealing, not just functional," says Bill. "Instead of raw text, you want some graphics to really help make it appealing, but even the simplest graphics editor we could think of has the problem that it takes time to draw - and an even worse problem that most people can’t draw something beautiful, something they love. They can scribble, but they can’t draw something attractive. The rubber stamps are an outgrowth of those little stickers kids use. People can arbitrarily assign properties to them - there are scripts inside them. For instance, the stamp marked URGENT has a script that marks it as such.""
