No comment

Being a high-value top notch CEO does not mean that you have the gift of predicting the future. Here is a sample of some assertions that does not need any comments 😉


“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers”
(but there are no confirmation that the quote is real)
Thomas Watson, president of International Business Machines (IBM), 1943.


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

Ken Olsen, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corporation, 1977.


“No one will need more than 637 kb of memory for a personal computer.”
Bill Gates, chairman and founder of Microsoft, 1981.


“For CRM, ASP model has no future”
Tom Siebel, founder of Siebel, 2002.

Now, maybe you heard Eric Schmitd predicting what the web will be in 5 years
