I can live without endless television programmes and films just centered around computers. I can sort of live without that.
We’re leading a fundamental shift from centralized energy to distributed energy. Energy will go in that direction, just like mainframe computers went to client servers, then to the Internet. I believe in solar, and the macro trends are just too undeniable.
Computers were never designed in the first place to become musical instruments. Within a computer, everything is sterile – there’s no sound, there’s no air. It’s totally code. Like with computer-generated effects in movies, you can create wonders. But it’s really hard to create emotion.
I didn’t know much about computers. I still worked on a manual Olivetti typewriter.
I’m projecting somewhere between 100 million and 200 million computers on the Net by the end of December 2000, and about 300 million users by that same time.
I use the computers to maximize my efficiency and establish a baseline for my swing, but once I’m on the course, I don’t think about any of that. I just play.
People talk about computer programmers as if computers are our whole lives. That’s simply not true.
Calculating does not equal mathematics. It’s a subsection of it. In years gone by it was the limiting factor, but computers now allow you to make the whole of mathematics more intellectual.
Introduced in the 1960s, multitasking is an engineering strategy for making computers more efficient. Human beings are the slowest elements in a system.
I’m really interested in the current tech world because of my brother Michael. Since we were little kids, in the 1970s, he was dealing with the first computers. He works for the government.
Economics pretends to be a science. Its practitioners fill blackboards with equations and clog computers with data. But it is really a faith, or more accurately a set of overlapping and squabbling faiths, each with its own doctrines.
I have a suspicion that the politicians‘ revival of the old behaviourist ideas and techniques will be helped and reinforced by a powerful ally – the machines we have built. The computers.
Pixar is not about computers, it’s about people.
The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it to a nationwide communications network. We’re just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people – as remarkable as the telephone.
If I wasn’t a professional scientist, I’d be an amateur scientist. But plan B was to go into computers.
For short term relaxation, I take a hot tub. It’s my best way to unblock writers‘ block, too. For a bit longer relaxation, I enjoy camping. Just being in the wilderness, with no phones or computers or anything I have to do really refreshes my spirit.
The form of computers has never been important, with speed and performance being the only things that mattered.
There’s no other major item most of us own that is as confusing, unpredictable and unreliable as our personal computers.
If you like overheads, you’ll love PowerPoint.
Computers have cut-and-paste functions. So does right-wing historical memory.
I like people writing great songs on guitar or piano or what have you. I miss people getting on stage with real bands and real instruments and expressing themselves that way instead of with computers and technology.
We’ve got to be delivering young people, and people that are getting reeducated, people who are getting reemployed, into the marketplace with skills to work together, to understand computers, and to be able to be a part of that 21st century economy.
I don’t care how big and fast computers are, they’re not as big and fast as the world.
The manufacture and running of all the world‘s computers, the toxicity of the hardware mountains that we currently dump on other countries; all this can be totted up on the environmental account of web-users and its authors.
The internet could be a very positive step towards education, organisation and participation in a meaningful society.
I used to have the very standard worldview. I can easily identify with people who see computers getting faster and smarter, and technology getting more and more beneficial, without seeing the other side.
Originally, I was in both software and in online computing. The first innovation really was sort of at that time that we’re marrying the telephone and the computer so that people wouldn’t have to drive to the computer center. We didn’t have $1,000 computers.
We’re going to be able to ask our computers to monitor things for us, and when certain conditions happen, are triggered, the computers will take certain actions and inform us after the fact.
We think of computers as smart and powerful machines. But your goldfish is smarter.
In high school, I used to teach guitar and fix computers by the hour. I was looking for some way to make some cash, so I actually learned how to play guitar in order to try to teach it.
I’m a very methodical writer. Before computers, I used reams of paper and stacks of index cards.
People are on their computers more than watching TV, because you can only watch voyeur TV, which is basically what reality shows are, for so long.
But computers have changed the world for everyone, so there will be some way of working it out.
In order to be truly intelligent, computers must understand – that is probably the critical word.
We want the digital world to bend to your physical life, your real emotional life as a person, and we don’t want you to bend to computers.
This is what customers pay us for – to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.
Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don’t let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.
Girls are interested in computers, there just are not many programs out there for them.
The reason why Apple computers have worked so well over time is that, unlike Microsoft, they don’t bend over backward to be compatible with every piece of hardware or software in the digital universe. To code or create for Apple, you follow Apple’s rules. If you’re even allowed to.
You have to be very skilled in this industry. I grew in this industry; we created the very beginnings of this industry. We made the first PCs (personal computers) in the world.
When I moved to New York City to go college, my mother said, ‘If you want to be recognized, you need to go out to a club.’ Because we didn’t have computers. We didn’t have social media. We didn’t even have cellphones. So you had to go out to be recognized.
I don’t think ‘Sugar Man’ is a music doc any more than ‘The Social Network’ is about computers. It just happens to have the best soundtrack ever.
It was a huge challenge to learn digital painting well enough so that computers don’t pop into mind when one sees one.
There were no PCs when I started programming on computers.
As someone who was basically a software engineer for many years, I became fascinated with how the brain functions and is put together and works in such a different fashion than computers do.
You can look at stats as much as you want – and we do – but you can have too much of it. You can spend too much time looking at computers rather than looking at the real thing which is out there on the pitch. I still think that being a good judge of players is the most important thing.
Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.
If computers remain far worse than us at image recognition, a certain over-confident combination of man and machine can elsewhere take inaccuracy to a whole new level.
The whole hardware industry has experienced the phenomenon in which every time computers get cheaper, they appeal to a new set of users; every time they get more powerful, old customers upgrade.
I just think there’s a general interest in the world of computers.
How did the economy produce all these amazing things that we have around us – computers and cell phones and so on? There were a bunch of ideas, and the good ones grew and prospered. And the bad ones were pretty ruthlessly weeded out.
I was nerdy and really into computers. I was a good student until my senior year, when I started traveling and had a lot of absences.
I don’t type on the computer or edit. Law students who went to law school really just a couple years after I did were brought up all on the computers and that’s how they do it, but I was still part of the older school.
We’re seeing an enormous amount of global upward mobility that’s quite rapid and quite sudden, and undiscovered individuals have a chance – using the Internet, using computers – to prove themselves very quickly. So I think the mobility story will be a quite complicated one.
In a way, digital cameras were like very early personal computers such as the Commodore 64 – clunky and able to do only a few things.
I took computers in high school. I would do all my own programming, but I didn’t see the future of computers for anything other than data processing. Who was going to use a computer for communications?
There has never been an unexpectedly short debugging period in the history of computers.
When computers came along, I felt for the first time that I had the proper tools for the kind of theoretical work I wanted to do. So I moved over to that, and that got me into psychology.

Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.
From computers to information technology to airplanes, it has been America’s unique blend of republican government and free-market capitalism that has allowed us to surpass all other nations in history.
There are jobs, particularly database-oriented ones, for which computers are necessary, but for everyday office life, I question whether they have brought the productivity that their enormous cost, up to £10,000 per person, demands.
I first got interested in the brain through computers.
I just became one with my browser software.
It’s hardware that makes a machine fast. It’s software that makes a fast machine slow.
I think our problems are inherently unsolvable. We need to change our genetic make-up or create computers that will think us out of it. I don’t think humans are able to deal with what we have.
When Steve Jobs toured Xerox PARC and saw computers running the first operating system that used Windows and a mouse, he assumed he was looking at a new way to work a personal computer. He brought the concept back to Cupertino and created the Mac, then Bill Gates followed suit, and the rest is history.
Because you have things like ‘American Idol‘ and you’ve got radio stations that play music made entirely by computers, it’s easy to forget there are bands with actual people playing actual instruments that rock.
Right now, computers, which are supposed to be our servant, are oppressing us.
This is a man who was 23 years old when he theorized the idea of creating a programmable machine, and in that way, Turing foresaw computers and artificial intelligence. These were revolutionary ideas at that time.

Today, computers are almost second nature to most of us.
Computers were programmed to swap out error-prone, inconsistent human calculation with digital perfection.
Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn.
Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living.
When I was 8 or 9, I started using bulletin board systems, which was the precursor to the Internet, where you’d dial into… a shared system and shared computers. I’ve had an email address since the late ’80s, when I was 8 or 9 years old, and then I got on the Internet in ’93 when it was first starting out.
One thing about computers and iPhones is they’re making people mentally lazy.
Look at what Silicon Valley has done – the advance of computers.
I had originally wanted to be a lawyer. Even when I went to college and majored in engineering, I still thought I’d get a law degree. Then I started taking electrical engineering classes where I saw some of the innovation happening around computers and solid-state technology in the mid ’80s.
Today, computers help us making the music. It’s really a tool.
Electromagnetic theory and experiment gave us the telephone, radio, TV, computers, and made the internal combustion engine practical – thus, the car and airplane, leading inevitably to the rocket and outer-space exploration.
I started with CB radio, ham radio, and eventually went into computers. And I was just fascinated with it. And back then, when I was in school, computer hacking was encouraged. It was an encouraged activity. In fact, I remember one of the projects my teacher gave me was writing a log-in simulator.
Some claim that computers will, by 2050, achieve human capabilities. Of course, in some respects they already have.
Equipped with cell phones, beepers, and handheld computers, the ‘conspicuously industrious‘ blur the line between home and office by working anytime, anywhere.

By 2029, computers will have emotional intelligence and be convincing as people.
I’m working on artificial intelligence. Actually, natural language understanding, which is to get computers to understand the meaning of documents.
We’ve seen computers play chess and beat grand masters. We’ve seen computers drive a car across a desert. But interestingly, playing chess is easy, but having a conversation about nothing is really difficult for a computer.
With the appearance of communications networks and interconnected computers, we got the world wide web, and it changed the lives of most people, I think.
If you could utilize the resources of the end users’ computers, you could do things much more efficiently.
I think the only reason people use PCs is because they have to. Mac is the most streamlined computer there is. I started using the Mac in college because I was doing editing, and they were the only computers we could use to do that.
When I heard the news that Steve Jobs had died, my mind flashed back to 1985, when I began my love affair with computers. I was stationed in Moscow for The Associated Press, and I ordered an Apple IIc – by Telex – from a department store in Helsinki, Finland. They express-shipped it to me, a month later, by train.
It is an interesting fact that during my tour I was never allowed access to computers, radios, or anything else that I might damage through curiosity, or perhaps something more sinister.
I closely follow everything about user interface or human-computer interface: technology that makes computers closer to the way the human being actually functions.
I’m encouraging kids to use computers at their own pace to build aspirations.
So a more sensible thing it seemed to me was to go to Silicon Valley and be pushing on the technology companies to accelerate the use of audio and music in computers.
The technological revolution at home makes it much easier for computers to do our work.
In effect, the Internet is a global connection of interconnected computers. It has been described as truly a peer-to-peer system with many distributed nodes and no central point of control architecture.

I don’t really love computers.
I’m looking to evolve the concept of the new renaissance artist, taking the world by storm through the art of public display and demonstration, with technical savvy, using cell phones and computers.
I thought of computers as very low class. I thought of myself as a pure mathematician and was interested in partial differential equations and topology and things like that.
For me, growing up coding and computers and video games wasn’t something that was cool, but it was something that I was always passionate about. I never let the fact that that wasn’t something that was cool take me away from it.
In the early 1990s, Americans used their home phone lines to connect their desktop computers to the Internet via ISPs like AOL, Earthlink, or Netzero. Back then, the ISPs didn’t have cost-effective technology to select particular sites for blocking or privileging.
I want people to come to me open and vulnerable. When they come to the gallery, they have to leave their watches, their computers, their Blackberrys, iPads, iPhones, because we are so incredibly used to technology, and I wanted to remove that.
My first computers were a Timex Sinclair and an Apple II.
We’ve been working now with computers and education for 30 years, computers in developing countries for 20 years, and trying to make low-cost machines for 10 years. This is not a sudden turn down the road.
People already have bionic arms and legs that work by the power of thought. And we increasingly outsource mental and communicative activities to computers. We are merging with our smartphones. Very soon, they will just be part of the body.
Video games and computers have become babysitters for kids.
The computer is a moron.
I think people, just because of digital recording and how computers have become such an important part of our lives, I think the means to record music now is in more people‘s hands. It’s a lot cheaper than it used to be.
Theaters are always going to be around, and doing fine. With computers and technology, we’re becoming more and more secluded from each other. And the movie theater is one of the last places where we can still gather and experience something together. I don’t think the desire for that magic will ever go away.
Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.
A lot of the design courses in schools and colleges don’t incorporate very much making, and a lot of the making courses incorporate too much technology and computers.

I am interested in computers and technology, and art, photography, and design.
Reading computer manuals without the hardware is as frustrating as reading sex manuals without the software.
Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.
Scientists have discovered that, as we age, our brains act like computers with fuller and fuller hard drives. So when we’re trying to recall a fact or a word or a name, it takes us longer, because – to put it scientifically – our brains hold a lot of ‘stuff.’
Computers and electronic music are not the opposite of the warm human music. It’s exactly the same.
Some computers have security software that make it impossible to hack into, and it’s the same with brains – some malfunction, and some, you can’t hack into them at all.
I’m into computers and have been for a while.
I don’t know where anyone ever got the idea that technology, in and of itself, was a savior. Like all human-created ‘progress,’ computers are problematic, giving and taking away.
Diaspora starts about a thousand years from now. Most of human civilisation has moved inside computers; essentially, a major branch of our descendants consists of conscious software.
I’m too old-fashioned to use a computer. I’m too old-fashioned to use a quill.
I have always believed that technology should do the hard work – discovery, organization, communication – so users can do what makes them happiest: living and loving, not messing with annoying computers! That means making our products work together seamlessly.
Once computers can program, they basically take over technological progress because already, today, the majority of technological progress is run by software, by programming.
Computers and the Internet have made it really easy to rant. It’s made everyone overly opinionated.
Silicon Valley is a great place for Bitcoin, since everyone understands computers, and there are lots of libertarians running around.
I don’t think Apple would be making the computers, the iPhone, being the top electronics company it is, if Steve Jobs didn’t have some regrets over mistakes he made and learned to overcome them.
Computers are scary. They’re nightmares to fix, lose our stuff, and, on occasion, they crash, producing the blue screen of death. Steve Jobs knew this. He knew that computers were bulky and hernia-inducing and Darth Vader black. He understood the value of declarative design.
Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers – organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative – if we don’t solve these security problems, then people will hold back.
There’s all these ways to instantly communicate – cars, computers, telephone and transportation – and even with all that, it’s so hard to find people and have an honest communication with them.
What we did not imagine was a Web of people, but a Web of documents.
We’ve lost touch and allowed technology to take precedence over organic nature. But let’s not forget that those microchips in our computers came from elements of the earth.
One of the most feared expressions in modern times is ‘The computer is down.’
My dad, Chris, is from St Kitts. He worked in computers. I remember the first laptop when he brought it home. People from primary school came to check it out – it was huge.
The idea behind digital computers may be explained by saying that these machines are intended to carry out any operations which could be done by a human computer.
There are a lot of Yahoo users who live in countries where their freedom of expression and freedom of association is not respected and where the government is trying to put malware on their computers to track them.
The thing that changed everything for me was the Firefox browser. I was pretty bad when it came to computers – I didn’t know how powerful the internet could be until I discovered tabbed browsing.
People assume that computers will do everything that humans do. Not good. People are different from each other and they are all really different from computers.
Technology is changing so fast that investment in hardware is getting riskier everyday. On the other hand, whether it is traditional computers or smart gadgets which are part of the convergence technologies of the future, some planning of hardware needs is still important.
It always helps to be a good programmer. It is important to like computers and to be able to think of things people would want to do with their computers.
Software comes from heaven when you have good hardware.
I think that what computers have done is just disastrous to the language.
I got into computers back in the early ’80s, so it was a natural progression of learning about e-mail in the mid-’80s and getting into the Internet when it opened up in the early ’90s.
Juries are not computers. They are composed of human beings who evaluate evidence differently.
Our successes have been so great and so rapid that, within 20 years, we’ve gotten a third of the world’s population online, shrunk our computers to the size of our hands, and connected each to each.
I’ve never been much of a computer guy at least in terms of playing with computers. Actually until I was about 11 I didn’t use a computer for preparing for games at all. I was playing a bit online, was using the chess club mainly. Now, obviously, the computer is an important tool for me preparing for my games.
Computers have become more friendly, understandable, and lots of years and thought have been put into developing software to convince people that they want and need a computer.
I think computers are the ultimate writing tool. I’m a very slow writer, so I appreciate it every day.

Even when I work with computers, with high technology, I always try to put in the touch of the hand.
I believe in the potential of all things possibly imagined that can be made into a reality. My uncle was a Swedish scientist, and in the 1970s, he would speak of computers controlling most things in the future and self-driving cars and wireless communication. All the things that we are living with now.
By the time I was a senior in high school, I knew I wanted to move to Silicon Valley and learn more about computers and the Internet. I just fell in love with technology and the potential of everything the Internet had to offer.
Coding is like writing, and we live in a time of the new industrial revolution. What’s happened is that maybe everybody knows how to use computers, like they know how to read, but they don’t know how to write.
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the DMV and look around, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.’
The contrast of ISIL’s videos – which proclaim a fully-functioning and prosperous state – with those of RBSS, which captured the dysfunction and violence of everyday life, is shocking. In a sense, it’s a war of ideas, a war of propaganda, a war being waged with cameras and computers, not just guns.
Nanotechnology will let us build computers that are incredibly powerful. We’ll have more power in the volume of a sugar cube than exists in the entire world today.
Technology improves our lives in so many ways – from our toasters, ovens, and refrigerators at home to our computers, fax machines, and BlackBerrys at work. Technology makes once-burdensome tasks easy and fun.
We could say we want the Web to reflect a vision of the world where everything is done democratically. To do that, we get computers to talk with each other in such a way as to promote that ideal.
I’m not very technically minded. I mean, I don’t know how to do e-mail on computers.
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
I think a lot of people will be liberated from a lot of oppressive manufacturing jobs, or a lot of service jobs, because they’ll be done by computers. There’ll be the world’s best education available online and free.
You can model experiments on computers now and then execute them, and you don’t actually need a fully stocked lab.
In the past, Google has used teams of humans to ‘read’ its street address images – in essence, to render images into actionable data. But using neural network technology, the company has trained computers to extract that data automatically – and with a level of accuracy that meets or beats human operators.
The spread of computers and the Internet will put jobs in two categories. People who tell computers what to do, and people who are told by computers what to do.
The Internet: transforming society and shaping the future through chat.
My daughter was 10 years old when she told me she hated computers. As someone who has spent her career helping build one of the largest tech companies in the world, I was in shock. Suddenly an issue I faced repeatedly at work – the lack of women in tech – hit squarely at home.
By the time we get to the 2040s, we’ll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that’s singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter.
We didn’t know the importance of home computers before the Internet. We had them mostly for fun, then the Internet came along and was enabled by all the PCs out there.
When I’m not writing or tweaking my computer, I do embroidery. When I’m not plunging into the past, tweaking, or embroidering, I’m reading books about history, computers, or embroidery.
Maths is fundamentally a different process in education than it is in the real world. There is an insistence that we do maths by hand when most of it is done by computers. The idea that you have to do everything by hand before you can operate a computer is nonsense.
I build computers.
After a semester or so, my infatuation with computers burnt out as quickly as it had begun.
Supercomputers will achieve one human brain capacity by 2010, and personal computers will do so by about 2020.
Computers double their performance every month.
I’m not afraid of computers taking over the world.
I start every book with something that outrages me. I’m outraged by the FBI, the CIA, and computers that seem to have catalogued our lives. Power too often is accompanied by irresponsibility.
As the Kindle’s dread grip on digital publishing is challenged by tablet computers and Android smartphones, with their bright screens and high resolution, the need for illustration is growing.
The future of television is not on television but online. A majority of us are turning to our computers and mobile devices for news and entertainment, Millennials especially.
Access to computers and the Internet has become a basic need for education in our society.
You can’t trust the internet.
Computers sort of came around through games and toys. And you know, the first computer most people had in the house may have been a computer to play ‘Pong,’ a little microprocessor embedded, and then other games that came after that.
Computers ought to help people find their own best path through lots of textual information.
I think after a time there won’t be anything left to be interesting for mankind. Computers are about to do everything for us. Cellphones are smarter than we are. We’ll embrace spirituality because we’ll be bored of everything else.
Technology has forever changed the world we live in. We’re online, in one way or another, all day long. Our phones and computers have become reflections of our personalities, our interests, and our identities. They hold much that is important to us.
Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.
To err is human – and to blame it on a computer is even more so.
I think it’s pretty pointless, my children learning to use a keyboard – we will just talk to our computers. Why would we not?

I fix my grandchildren‘s computers.
The iPhone is made on a global scale, and it blends computers, the Internet, communications, and artificial intelligence in one blockbuster, game-changing innovation. It reflects so many of the things that our contemporary world is good at – indeed, great at.
I just grew up liking computers and stuff like that. Mainly cool stuff, like video games.
It seems like everything that we see perceived in the brain before we actually use our own eyes, that everything we see is coming through computers or machines and then is being input in our brain cells. So that really worries me.
You couldn’t have fed the ’50s into a computer and come out with the ’60s.
I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.
Computers make me totally blank out.
Social media has come a long way. With the good has come some bad, and you always have a lot of people hiding behind their computers and being very critical of what you do on and off the field, of what you tweet, of what you say, of everything you do.
Our computers have become windows through which we can gaze upon a world that is virtually without horizons or boundaries.
So technologies, whether it is a telephone or an iPhone, computers in general or automobiles, television even, all individualize us. We all sit in front of our iPhones and communicating but are we really communicating?
Writing genetic code like we do software will usher in a completely new way of living for all of us. When this happens, our society will be as fundamentally changed as we have seen from the invention of computers.
I happen to think that computers are the most important thing to happen to musicians since the invention of cat-gut which was a long time ago.
I’ve always been at the intersection of computers and whatever they can revolutionize.
I got interested in computers and how they could be enslaved to the megalomaniac impulses of a teenager.
Some people are on their darn computers all day long.
The use of computers and other mobile devices has to be so carefully controlled. As we discovered with ‘Dream School’ rather awkwardly, it can become a source of total disruption that destroys the co-operative learning experience.
I’ve never really been very interested in computers themselves. I don’t watch them; I watch how people behave around them. That’s becoming more difficult to do because everything is around them.
Computers, like automobiles and airplanes, do only what people tell them to do.
I am a child of digital generation. I have done most of the records with Rilo Kiley on computers, on Pro Tools or other digital programs.
I’ve always been into computers. When I was getting out of high school and forming my identity musically, all of it was really coming into the fold, computers and drum machines. It felt like, you know, I’m in the right place at the right time. I liked the collision.
When I was a graduate student in computer science in the early 2000s, computers were barely able to detect sharp edges in photographs, let alone recognize something as loosely defined as a human face.
I don’t look at computers as opponents. For me it is much more interesting to beat humans.
Bill Gates is the pope of the personal computer industry. He decides who’s going to build.
I was around computers from birth; we had one of the first Macs, which came out shortly before I was born, and my dad ran a company that wrote computer operating systems. I don’t think I have any particular technical skills; I just got a really large head start.
The human brain works in, so far, mysterious and wondrous ways that are completely different than the ways that computers calculate. Things like appetite or emotion, how do those function in the brain?
Computers intimidate me.
Regardless of how it’s done, transaction costs will continue to plummet as computers get more powerful. Low transaction costs are a wonderful thing if you’re in the transaction business. They’re wonderful for consumers too, making it cheaper and easier to buy things and creating new things to buy.
You have to wait for people to program you. The only difference is the amount of people that you’re going to reach but that’s going to even out in the next two or three years anyway. Computers are being bought faster than televisions right now.
Learning can take place in the backyard if there is a human being there who cares about the child. Before learning computers, children should learn to read first. They should sit around the dinner table and hear what their parents have to say and think.
There are hundreds of competitors in the direct marketing of computers. We have been very successful because of quality, price, service and the way we treat the customer.
Technological developments are changing the way we live, and there is much talk of digitalisation and the disruptive business models enabled by smart phones, tablets, computers, and the ‘Internet of things.’
I am of the very last generation who didn’t have computers at school. As we grow old we’ll become something of an aberration.
The only legitimate use of a computer is to play games.
I detest computers. If you had a device like that 30 years ago that froze up constantly, misbehaved constantly, lost your information and screwed up when you needed it the most, it would have been laughable.
The internet is not for sissies.
They were saying computers deal with numbers. This was absolutely nonsense. Computers deal with arbitrary information of any kind.
I have nothing against investment banking, but it’s like massaging money rather than creating money. If you’re in physics, you create inventions, you create lasers, you create transistors, computers, GPS.
We can’t really know ourselves because we have not created ourselves. But we can know computers, we can know cars, because anything that we made, we can understand.
A calculator is a tool for humans to do math more quickly and accurately than they could ever do by hand; similarly, AI computers are tools for us to perform tasks too difficult or expensive for us to do on our own, such as analyzing large data sets or keeping up to date on medical research.
You can’t have thousands of cars without good computers on the electric grid.
Yes, my children are fascinated by design of technology and computers. And I am very happy with that. Today design is a wide world; it doesn’t have to be interiors or architecture. It could be anything.
If you take a regular animated film, that’s being done by animators on computers, so the filmmaking is a fairly technical process.
People think computers will keep them from making mistakes. They’re wrong. With computers you make mistakes faster.
I take computers practically apart and put them back together. I have a supercomputer I built over the years out of different computers.
If the machines can take the drudgery out of it and just leave us with the joy of drawing, then that’s the best of both worlds – and I’ll use those computers!
I got my first computer when I was 6, and I was part of that early generation of children who grew up with computers always being around. I fell in love with them early on.
Technology is like water; it wants to find its level. So if you hook up your computer to a billion other computers, it just makes sense that a tremendous share of the resources you want to use – not only text or media but processing power too – will be located remotely.
I don’t take for granted all the blessings that I have, and as soon as I heard about Computers for Youth, I really wanted to be involved. Anyone who knows me knows how much time I spend on computers. I’m a computer addict. Every young person deserves to have a computer in his or her home.
I actually did not touch any type of computer until I came to America. I knew computers existed, yes, but I didn’t have access to them. In the Philippines, I did have video games.
I am such a gearhead. In my recording studio, I personally engineer and edit everything on computers.
I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend’s garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computers and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together.
As computer intelligence gets better, what will be possible when we interface our brains with computers? It might sound scary, but early evidence suggests otherwise: interfacing brains with machines can be helpful in treating traumatic brain injury, repairing spinal cord damage, and countless other applications.
I am very bad at computers. I don’t really know how to write email.
Perhaps one day we will have machines that can cope with approximate task descriptions, but in the meantime, we have to be very prissy about how we tell computers to do things.
I use many different gadgets connected with computers; I use PCs, laptops and a Palm Pilot. I also use the Internet to visit websites, especially within Polish-language Internet. I usually go to political discussion groups and sites – of course, as I use my real name, people never believe that they are chatting with me!
My goal wasn’t to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers.
Until computers and robots make quantum advances, they basically remain adding machines: capable only of doing things in which all the variables are controlled and predictable.
My dad used to build computers for the U.S. government, for military intelligence. So he always had computers around the house.
One of the big first computers was called SAGE, which was a missile defense, the first missile-defense computer, which was, like, one of the first computers in the history of the world which got sold to the Department of Defense for, I don’t know, tens and tens of millions of dollars at the time.
Every ISP is being attacked, maliciously both from in the United States and outside of the United States, by those who want to invade people’s privacy. But more importantly they want to take control of computers, they want to hack them, they want to steal information.
Computers used to petrify me before I figured it was just a matter of getting used to them.
Modern people are only willing to believe in their computers, while I believe in myself.
When I was younger, I would look at a game with computers and still be fascinated by the possibilities.
One of the problems with computers, particularly for the older people, is they were befuddled by them, and the computers have gotten better. They have gotten easier to use. They have gotten less expensive. The software interfaces have made things a lot more accessible.
The Internet is not just one thing, it’s a collection of things – of numerous communications networks that all speak the same digital language.
We’ve lost these qualities, these abilities to do something by hand. Some illustrators have it still, but it’s just not art. We have photography. We have cameras and computers that do it better and faster.
We resemble computers intellectually and animals emotionally.
I don’t really like encouraging people to go on the Internet too much, we’re constantly distracted with the Internet and computers.
I think when I graduated from my high school in ’84, they were just bringing computers in. I don’t even know if they were for classes. They might have just been for the administration. It was nowhere on the radar for anybody that I know.
My dad used to work at IBM, so we used to get discounts on computers and stuff, and I did have a ThinkPad.
