The nature of the personal computer is simply not fully understood by companies like Apple (or anyone else for that matter). Apple makes the arrogant assumption of thinking that it knows what you want and need. It, unfortunately, leaves the “why” out of the equation — as in “why would I want this?” The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse’. There is no evidence that people want to use these things. I dont want one of these new fangled devices.

San Francisco Examiner, John C. Dvorak, 19 Feb. 1984, reviewing the Macintosh.

как говорится, the only thing we learn from history is that we do not learn from history — Дворак и сейчас ровно такой же:

ну да, ну да.
