  2. 2. Bob Dole“The internet is a great way to get on the net.”-- Former U.S. Republican presidential nominee Bob DoleAlso, as Homer Simpson once observed, they have the Internet oncomputers now. Who knows what they’ll think of next?
  3. 3. Bill Gates, Quote 1 “640K ought to be enough for anybody.” -- Microsoft founder Bill Gates If he had known in 1981 how many different covers of Call Me Maybe would be available in iTunes, clearly he would never have made this remark.
  4. 4. Bill Gates, Quote Two“If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industryhas, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 MPG”-- Microsoft founder Bill GatesBill is absolutely correct.Of course our cards would also crash far more frequently, andthe term “blue screen of death” would take on a whole new, andrather unfortunate, meaning.
  5. 5. Scott McNealy“The only thing that Id rather own than Windows is English, becausethen I could charge you two hundred and forty-nine dollars for theright to speak it. “-- Sun Microsystems co-founder Scott McNealyThat would only work if you get every manufacturer to pre-load thelatest revision of English at birth. Myself, I’d wait for the first servicepack. Also, consider a dual-boot.
  6. 6. Thomas Watson“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.”-- Former IBM Chairman Thomas WatsonWatson shared this observation in 1943. And any day now, thisalleged post-PC era will surely begin, right?
  7. 7. Steve Wozniak“Never trust a computer you cant throw out a window.”- Apple co-founder Steve WozniakNow that’s a post-PC era I can get behind. And possiblywhy the iMac came with a handle. So much more easy (andstylish) to lob out a window than an ugly beige box.
