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.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
