Why there's no future in technology

David Pogue, one of my favorite technology writers, explains why it's so tough to predict the future of technology in this Scientific American column. 
My favorite quote:
"The Americans have need of the telephone, but we do not. We have plenty of messenger boys."—Sir William Preece, chief engineer, British Post Office, 1876
"Apple [is] a chaotic mess without a strategic vision and certainly no future."TIME, February 5, 1996
"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."—Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943
