Computer Wisdom

Postby stomperrob » Mon Aug 02, 2004 2:42 pm

We tend to think of those people at the forefront of the computer industry as true inovators, that's how they made their millions/billions. But here's some of the actual thoughts of these future thinkers:

"I think there is a world market for about five computers".
~Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943

"There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home".~Ken Olson, President of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977

"640K of memory ought to be enough for anybody".
~Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, 1981

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

This one is engraved on a plaque in my office. A definite favorite among techno-geeks. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
