“Everything that can be invented has been invented.” -Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899.

“640K ought to be enough for anybody.” — Bill Gates, 1981

“Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.” –Popular Mechanics, forecasting the relentless march of science, 1949

“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” –Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

“I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and walked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won’t last out the year.” –The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957

“There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” –Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977

“Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.” –Lord Kelvin, president, Royal Society, 1895.
