Yeah, I know. But I remember reading in my youth about the great inventors and inventions. And the doubters who said that steam would never catch on. And that gas lighting in a home would never work. Would burn your house down. And that no one would want dangerous electricity into their homes. And who would ever ride around on a horseless carriage. And I can even remember myself saying back in the seventies, these damn toy computers (PCs) will never work in a business environment!
We was all wrong.
So you're the guy from IBM who turned down DOS! Amazing.
Who said anything about doubting it would succeed? I was just pointing out (as requested) the Achilles Heel of capacitors.
It’s not insurmountable or we’d not have but a tenth of the electronic tech we have today. But it’s the big problem with capacitors.
And look what electricity did to that poor elephant.
LOL at toy computers. My first looked like a sewing machine carrier.
I remember the building days as well.
Now I couldn’t tell you anything about the new ones.
And I can remember my computer programming instructor back in 1974 telling us that my TI hand held calculator will be the only computer I will ever need..........
