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.

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
