Notable quotes from Office 2.0

Lotsa thought-provoking comments happening at Office 2.0:

"'Standards' is the only one-word oxymoron in the English language."
&nbsp&nbsp --Harvard's Andrew McAfee

"As far as whether it's online or offline, most people think it's irrelevant. They just want their stuff to work."
&nbsp&nbsp --Blogger Shel Israel

"Synchronization is almost an impossible job to solve...from a mathematical standpoint, it's hard."
&nbsp&nbsp --Office 2.0 conference organizer Ismael Ghalimi, explaining why it makes sense for data to live in one online place

"Not surprisingly, we think that search is the navigation part of Office 2.0"
&nbsp&nbsp --Google's Rajen Sheth

"I really think there will be a time in the future when there's no such thing as will be the new electricity; we just won't be offline unless we choose to be."
&nbsp&nbsp --WebEx's Karen Leavitt (side note: I'm not sure that even electricity is the new electricity yet: Where I'm sitting at the conference, there's no AC power--if I stop blogging, it's because my battery has run out.)

"I use Microsoft Office as my habit; it's the devil, I know, but I've learned to work around the things I don't like."
&nbsp&nbsp --Shel Israel, who said that young people coming into the workplace aren't attached to Microsoft tools in the way that older folks are.

WD My Cloud Home

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
