Computers have done wonders in improving our productivity, but at the cost of making humans part of the machine. We live according to the schedule of the computer rather than the other way around...How incredibly wrong he was.

LOL buddy, brush those tears from your eyes, he didn't invent your nemesis (the computer), just the integrated circuit.
