Im Jahre 1977....
....gab ein Herr namens Ken Olsen folgendes - bis heute gerne angebrachtes - Zitat von sich:
"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home."
was zu Deutsch so viel heißt wie
"Es gibt keinen einzigen Grund, warum irgendjemand einen Computer bei sich zu Hause haben möchte"
Jedoch stritt er ab, dies je gesagt zu haben, mit den Worten "I'm quoted all the time as saying (early during the PC revolution) that there was no reason to have a computer in the home. What I said, I said very carefully and knew exactly what I was saying because I had prepared it. I said, 'I don't think we want our personal lives run by computer.' If you steal something from the refrigerator at midnight, you don't want it entered into the computer."
