Foolish tech prediction #2 :

"Television won't be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months.
People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night."

- Darryl Zanuck, executive at 20th Century Fox, 1946

Foolish tech prediction #4 :

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home."

- Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977 (bought by Compaq later)

Foolish tech prediction #5 :

"Almost all of the many predictions now being made about 1996 hinge on the Internet's continuing exponential growth.
But I predict the Internet will soon go spectacularly supernova and in 1996 catastrophically collapse."

- Robert Metcalfe, founder of 3Com, 1995


Foolish tech prediction #7 :

"Two years from now, spam will be solved."

- Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, 2004
