Quote of the Day on Computers

I have to pass on this quote from Robert X. Cringley I got from the Quotations Page's, Quotes of the Day: "If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside." File this under 'its funny because its true'.

well, I used that quote with 2 blonde
pharmacy reps and they laughed but I don't think they got it.

Yes, well I know at least 1 redhead who would neither get it nor laugh. It is probably safe to assume that none of the above would claim to have ever heard of Moore's law, though I have mentioned it to the redhead many times.

G.E.M. pretty wise in 1965.

Okay the redhead wanted it to be clear that she both laughed and got it, and that it doesn't take a genius to see the humor there. She still knows nothing of Moore's law though.
