A comic predicted Apple inventing Microsoft's Surface three years ago

Sometimes people make predictions and they're terribly wrong, but every once in a while an oracle appears with a prophecy that predicts the future. Joel Watson, a cartoonist, is today's oracle. Watson captured the moment Microsoft announced its original Surface tablet, back in 2012, in cartoon form. The crowd's reaction simply mocks Microsoft's tablet, but Watson predicts the crowd at Apple's event (in 2015!) will love it and claim Apple invented such a device. It's Apple's reality distortion field in full effect. Genius.
