”The telephone is an amazing
 innovation, but who will ever
 use it?”
        // Rutherford B Hayes,
        American pres...
”This ’telephone’ has too many

“In the early 1980s AT&T asked McKinsey to
  estimate how many cellular phones would
  be in use in the world at the turn ...
”There is a world market for
   about five computers”
// Tomas Watson, founder and
   chairman of IBM, 1943
”It was gigantic and did not look like a
   camera”
// Comment on Hasselblad’s first digital
   camera prototype developed...
All those people who’ve said that we’ve
  reached the end of development have
  one thing in common…
…They have all been wrong.
The optimist has been right.
