Tim Cook's "Google Glass" big gaff

Famous people need to be careful about predicting technology future and Tim Cook stepped into the history books this week with the statement about Google Glass
about Google Glass "likelihood of a broad range of appeal hard to see" says Tim Cook
in 1977 Ken Olsen said
"There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home."
 and Bill Gates quote is now thought to be a myth
"640kb ought to be enough for anybody."
Time will tell whether or not this statement of Tim's becomes truely false, but even if the current Google Glass does not take off, it's clear to me at least that a close derivative of glass will become a truely successful mass consumer product and Tim's quote will be added to Ken Olsen and Bill Gates future predictions.
