Does a .357 mag count? It has multiple uses and it serves .38 spl as well.

Works well as a hammer, door stop, and paper-weight also!

Yes, it IS a good one even though it seems not to be true!

However, isn't it true that the head of IBM said he saw no reason why any person would want a computer at home?

Yes, I believe that and many other high ranking people (mostly on the business side of the computer industry) seemed to believe that computers were not headed in the personal direction. Rather, they'd grow bigger and more industrialized.

It's amazing how wrong even smart people can be. For instance:

This one seems to have much more validity than the supposed Gates quote. ;D
