Computers! naa they will never catch on?

bellow are a few quotes from people who think that the computer will not be really used :o)

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

"640K ought to be enough for anybody." -- Bill Gates, 1981

"I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked 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

Strange eh? how time changes things?  Most of us have a terrabyte hard drive or at least an external one... what would happen if we had NO electricity?
