Who's laughing now?

The following quotes all date from 1976. What a difference a decade or three makes huh?

"We don't need you. You haven't got through college yet."
HP on Steve Jobs and his so called personal computer.

"Get your feet off my desk, get out of here; you stink and we're not going to buy your product"
Joe Keenan of Atari also to Steve Jobs.

"There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home"
Ken Olson from DEC to, believe it or not, Steve Jobs.
