There's really only one that they've done a leadership thing in, which is in search, and search today is very poor compared to what it will be even a year or two years from now -- their search, our search, everybody's search. So there's so much room to do better, to have that work well with the other offerings.
I hear they're coming out with a robot that will cook hamburgers, too. Let's spread that rumor - there's nothing they can't do.
We're not even giving you a time-frame. In fact, a lot of people who got the prototype code said, 'Hey this looks pretty good. Gee, you must be close to getting this done.' Because of all the integration and the extreme high level of quality, there's still quite a bit to be done.
Advances in our understanding of the human genome promise to revolutionize medicine and open the door to therapies that are tailored to individuals.
I don't think you'd be interviewing me if we were any less nimble. You'd be writing our epitaph.
You've got the weight on me, I'll give you that.
My job is about the most fun thing I do, but I have a broad set of interests, going places, reading things, doing things.
My value is still so much higher than I ever expected it to be by a factor of about 50. So the fact that at one point it was say, a factor of 60, well -- that wealth is all going back to society anyway.

There's been a lot of misinformation put out by the competitors, ... We will always stand for the PC industry -- high volume, low prices, rapid innovation. People who stand against the PC industry, I don't think they'll be successful.

Between the better phone, small screen devices, better PC and the wireless environment, it's a whole new world of communications,
People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn't they? People feared coal, they feared gas-powered engines... There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear. But with time, people will come to accept their silicon masters.
The world will get richer.
