  •  Gates said 640KB was more than enough... (6+ / 0-)

    ...for anyone using a computer.

    Bill Gates is a crappy programmer (and a college dropout, BTW), but a greta commercial vulture.

      young Mr. Gates, 640KB should be more than enough for anyone using a computer to communiate via the typed word.

      It's the add-ons -- fancy graphics, photos, websites that do all manner of fancy dances, charts and graphs and music videos -- that chew up all the capacity. And every couple of years, the amount of capacity chewed up increases, so that everyone has to buy new computers.

      It's like Detroit in the old days -- some years it was tail fins, other years no tail fins. Trade in one car, buy another.
