Technology Quotes A-Z by Author Technology Quotes A-Z by Author

If you look at the top 20 companies of the world, 19 of them are still brick-and-mortar companies. I have nothing against tech companies. What I am saying is that if you have a car manufacturer or an oil and gas manufacturer, you won’t get the supply over the Net.
Anil Ambani - Companies - Internet - Tech


The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.
Steve Ballmer - Technology - Learning - Innovation - Solutions

The lifeblood of our business is that R&D spend. There's nothing that flows through a pipe or down a wire or anything else. We have to continuously create new innovation that lets people do something they didn't think they could do the day before.
Steve Ballmer - Technology - Innovation - Products

Over the years, the U.S. economy has shown a remarkable ability to absorb shocks of all kinds, to recover, and to continue to grow. Flexible and efficient markets for labor and capital, an entrepreneurial tradition, and a general willingness to tolerate and even embrace technological and economic change all contribute to this resiliency.
Ben Bernanke - Change
- Economy - Entrepreneurs - Technology

As we go forward, I hope we're going to continue to use technology to make really big differences in how people live and work.
Sergey Brin - Technology - Work - Innovation

Some say Google is God. Others say Google is Satan. But if they think Google is too powerful, remember that with search engines unlike other companies, all it takes is a single click to go to another search engine.
Sergey Brin - Technology - Internet - Companies

Renewable energy is proven technology, the price is dropping, the rest of the world is going that way, that's where our investment should be going as well.
Bob Brown - Technology - Innovation


Even in such technical lines as engineering, about 15% of one's financial success is due one's technical knowledge and about 85% is due to skill in human engineering, to personality and the ability to lead people.
Dale Carnegie - Skill - Technology - People - Knowledge - Success

It's a fact that more people watch television and get their information that way than read books. I find new technology and new ways of communication very exciting and would like to do more in this field.

Stephen Covey - Technology - Learning


There are managers so preoccupied with their e-mail messages that they never look up from their screens to see what's happening in the nondigital world.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Management
- Internet - Technology

Our business is about technology, yes. But it's also about operations and customer relationships.

Michael Dell - Customers - Technology - Business

The interesting thing is when we design and architect a server, we don't design it for Windows or Linux, we design it for both. We don't really care, as long as we're selling the one the customer wants.

Michael Dell - Customers - Technology

Almost everybody today believes that nothing in economic history has ever moved as fast as, or had a greater impact than, the Information Revolution. But the Industrial Revolution moved at least as fast in the same time span, and had probably an equal impact if not a greater one.
Peter Drucker - Technology - Change

The new information technology—Internet and e-mail—have practically eliminated the physical costs of communications.
Peter Drucker - Technology - Internet

We are in the throes of a transition where every publication has to think of their digital strategy.
Bill Gates - Strategies - Technology

Robots will play an important role in providing physical assistance and even companionship for the elderly.
Bill Gates - Technology - Robot - Care

I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity and they can be shaped by their user.

Bill Gates - Technology - Computers - Power - Communication - Creativity

If something is expensive to develop, and somebody's not going to get paid, it won't get developed. So you decide: Do you want software to be written, or not?
Bill Gates - Invention - Technology - Software - Products - Profits

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.

Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Business

I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Products

It's pretty incredible to look back 30 years to when Microsoft was starting and realize how work has been transformed. We're finally getting close to what I call the digital workstyle.
Bill Gates - Technology - Improvement - Change

Paper is no longer a big part of my day. I get 90% of my news online, and when I go to a meeting and want to jot things down, I bring my Tablet PC. It's fully synchronized with my office machine so I have all the files I need.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology

Microsoft has had its success by doing low-cost products and constantly improving those products and we've really redefined the IT industry to be something that's about a tool for individuals.
Bill Gates - Products - Technology - Improvement - Success

We are always saying to ourself.. we have to innovate. We got to come up with that breakthrough. In fact, the way software works.. so long as you are using your existing software.. you don't pay us anything at all. So we're only paid for breakthroughs.
Bill Gates - Products - Technology - Customers - Innovative

Competition is always a fantastic thing, and the computer industry is intensely competitive. Whether it's Google or Apple or free software, we've got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.
Bill Gates - Technology - Competition

We're responsible for the creation of the PC industry. The whole idea of compatible machines and lots of software.. that's something we brought to computing. And so it's a responsibility for us to make sure that things like security don't get in the way of that dream.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Responsibility - Challenges

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. Businesses will be afraid to put their critical information on it because it will be exposed.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Problems


Technology happens, it's not good, it's not bad. Is steel good or bad?

Andrew Grove - Technology

A fundamental rule in technology says that whatever can be done will be done.
Andrew Grove - Technology - Improvement


Not all problems have a technological answer, but when they do, that is the more lasting solution.
Andrew Grove - Technology - Problems - Solutions

I think Amazon is the preeminent pioneer in building a new way of doing commerce: personalized, database-driven commerce, where the big value is not in the purchase fulfillment, but in knowing as much about a customer base of ten or twenty million people as a corner store used to know about a customer base of a few hundred. In today's mass-merchandising world, that's largely gone; Amazon is trying to use computer technology to re-establish it.
Andrew Grove - Technology - Internet - Customers


Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
Stephen Hawking - Human Race - Possible - Communication - Ideas - Achievement - Failures - Hope
- Technology - Talk

In this new wave of technology, you can't do it all yourself, you have to form alliances.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Partnership


I still have my laptop but I haven't used it. I'm a paper man, not electronic.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology


I think one of the big errors people are making right now is thinking that old-style businesses will be obsolete, when actually they will be an important part of this new civilization. Some retail groups are introducing e-commerce and think that the "bricks" are no longer useful. But they will continue to be important.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Mistakes
- Business - Internet

The key is the Internet. The United States is by far the most advanced country in this new digital culture, so we have to be there. The Internet is the heart of this new civilization, and telecommunications are the nervous system, or circulatory system.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Internet
- Growth - American

To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines.

Steve Jobs - Skill - Technology - Innovation

I have an almost religious zeal.. not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me, the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature, linking up.
Dan Millman - Technology - Internet

It is extremely unlikely that anyone coming out of school with a technical degree will go into one area and stay there. Today's students have to look forward to the excitement of probably having three or four careers.
Gordon Moore - Learning - Change - Jobs - Technology

I remember the difficulty we had in the beginning replacing magnetic cores in memories and eventually we had both cost and performance advantages. But it wasn't at all clear in the beginning.
Gordon Moore - Technology - Challenges

With engineering, I view this year's failure as next year's opportunity to try it again. Failures are not something to be avoided. You want to have them happen as quickly as you can so you can make progress rapidly.
Gordon Moore - Learning - Technology - Challenges - Failure

The technology at the leading edge changes so rapidly that you have to keep current after you get out of school. I think probably the most important thing is having good fundamentals.
Gordon Moore - Learning - Knowledge - Change - Technology

The Internet has been the most fundamental change during my lifetime and for hundreds of years. Someone the other day said, "It's the biggest thing since Gutenberg," and then someone else said "No, it's the biggest thing since the invention of writing."
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Internet - Technology

There is so much media now with the Internet and people, and so easy and so cheap to start a newspaper or start a magazine, there’s just millions of voices and people want to be heard.

Rupert Murdoch - Internet - Technology

I had one simple idea about telling friends about arts and technology events. People in the community suggested everything else to us, and that's our theme. We're really run by the people who use the site. We just run the infrastructure, and help out with problems.
Craig Newmark - Technology - People - Ideas - Friends
- Help - Problems - Internet

I need to make an okay living. The people who work for us need to. But after you make a comfortable living, how much more do you need? It's like I make a joke about nerd values, because I'm very much in the rich nerd tradition. And you know, we say, like, hey, people pay us for this stuff, like programming. You know, what else do we need?
Craig Newmark - Technology - Money - Earnings - Rich - Jobs


We have technology, finally, that for the first time in human history allows people to really maintain rich connections with much larger numbers of people.
Pierre Omidyar - Technology - People - Internet

eBay's business is based on enabling someone to do business with another person, and to do that, they first have to develop some measure of trust, either in the other person or the system.
Pierre Omidyar - Technology - People - Business

I'm a great believer in new technology and I think new technology is very scary for newspaper companies.
James Packer - Change - Companies - Technology


The fact that I have entered into IT-related business is proof that businesses have to evolve and keep with time. One has to re-invent continuously.

Kerry Packer - Change - Technology

I don't want to be left behind. In fact, I want to be here before the action starts.

Kerry Packer - Action - Opportunity - Technology

As we transition from one screen to multiscreens, Google has enormous opportunities to innovate and drive ever higher monetization. Just like Search in 2000.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Google - Opportunity - Search - Innovation - Gadgets

As devices multiply and usage changes (many users coming online today may never use a desktop machine), it becomes more and more important to ensure that people can access all of their stuff anywhere.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Gadgets - Change - Computers

Most of us carry at least one device, all the time, every day. In fact many of us would feel naked without our smartphone. It’s hardly surprising mobile search queries - and mobile commerce - are growing dramatically across the world.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Search - Gadgets - Growth

Sergey and I founded Google because we’re super optimisitc about the potential for technology to make the world a better place. Think about how many people are underserved by transportation today, like those with disabilities, and how self driving cars will transform their lives. Or the wasted time you sit in your car every day commuting to and from work. Or the deaths and injuries that could be avoided.
Larry Page - Technology - Google - Optimistic - Disability - Car - Transport

Excellence matters, and technology advances so fast that the potential for improvement is tremendous. So, since becoming CEO again, I’ve pushed hard to increase our velocity, improve our execution, and focus on the big bets that will make a difference in the world.
Larry Page - Google - Technology - Improvement - Fast - Potential - CEO - Focus

We have always tried to concentrate on the long term, and to place bets on technology we believe will have a significant impact over time. It’s hard to imagine now, but when we started Google most people thought search was a solved problem and that there was no money to be made apart from some banner advertising. We felt the exact opposite: that search quality was very poor, and that awesome user experiences would clearly make money.
Larry Page - Google - Internet - Money - Search - Technology - Focus - Advertising

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.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Communication - Computers - Products

The ultimate search engine would basically understand everything in the world, and it would always give you the right thing. And we're a long, long ways from that.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Intelligent - Google - Search

The Star Trek computer doesn't seem that interesting. They ask it random questions, it thinks for a while. I think we can do better than that.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Questions
- Computers

I want Wipro to be among the top ten IT companies in the world.
Azim Premji - Companies - Technology - Ambition

Upwards of two hundred species.. mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety.. are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence.. thanks to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace. I hope it will not be too long before the technologies that support our population explosion begin to be perceived as no less hazardous to the future of life on this planet than the endless production of radioactive wastes.
Daniel Quinn - Nature
- Life - People - World - Technology - Peace - Environmental

Technology is always evolving, and companies.. not just search companies.. can't be afraid to take advantage of change.
Eric Schmidt - Technology - Change - Improving - Companies

We don’t have a traditional strategy process, planning process like you’d find in traditional technical companies. It allows Google to innovate very, very quickly, which I think is a real strength of the company.
Eric Schmidt - Technology
- Companies - Planning - Innovation

I believe that this notion of self-publishing, which is what Blogger and blogging are really about, is the next big wave of human communication. The last big wave was Web activity. Before that one it was e-mail. Instant messaging was an extension of e-mail, real-time e-mail.
Eric Schmidt - Technology
- Internet

Information and communications technology unlocks the value of time, allowing and enabling multi-tasking, multi-channels, multi-this and multi-that.
Li Ka Shing - Technology - Time

I believe that Silicon Valley is truly a place of excellence and the impact of this tiny community on the world is completely disproportionate to its size. We are the undisputed leaders of technological change. But with our abundance of talent and resources, we also have the opportunity to be the pioneers of social change and, ultimately, this may be our greatest contribution.
Jeff Skoll - Business Ethics - Social - Belief - Change - Silicon Valley - World - Technology - Talent - Opportunity

The insanity of the collective egoic mind, amplified by science and technology, is rapidly taking our species to the brink of disaster. Evolve or die: that is our only choice now.
Eckhart Tolle - Life - Insanity - Ego - Technology - Death


I am guided by the vision of what I believe this show can be. Originally our goal was to uplift, enlighten, encourage and entertain through the medium of television. Now, our mission statement for The Oprah Winfrey Show is to use television to transform people's lives, to make viewers see themselves differently and to bring happiness and a sense of fulfillment into every home.
