Top Hardware And Software Quotes

Hardware And Software Quotes By Douglas Rushkoff

Technology has moved away from sharing and toward ownership. This suits software and hardware companies just fine: They create new, bloated programs that require more disk space and processing power. We buy bigger, faster computers, which then require more complex operating systems, and so on. — Douglas Rushkoff

Hardware And Software Quotes By Steve Ballmer

[Apple and RIM] are probably restricted, in some sense, to a certain maximum ... If you want to reach more people than that, you sort-of have to separate the hardware and the software issue. — Steve Ballmer

Hardware And Software Quotes By Pearl Zhu

The brain is the hardware, and the mind is the software, with the totality always in action, hardware plus software. — Pearl Zhu

Hardware And Software Quotes By Vincent Laforet

Stay open to as many new tools and think of as many ways you can to utilize them to your advantage. This not only includes equipment and hardware but also software or apps like Sun Seeker and social media outlets like Instagram and Twitter to build community. — Vincent Laforet

Hardware And Software Quotes By Brian Kernighan

Even though most people won't be directly involved with programming, everyone is affected by computers, so an educated person should have a good understanding of how computer hardware, software, and networks operate. — Brian Kernighan

Hardware And Software Quotes By Marshall McLuhan

The suddenness of the leap from hardware to software cannot but produce a period of anarchy and collapse, especially in the developed countries. — Marshall McLuhan

Hardware And Software Quotes By Pat Cadigan

I took this 'how to build computers' course basically because I'm sick and tired of getting ripped off by cheesy computer companies. Software baffles me. I like hardware. I used to change my own oil, and now I want to build my own computer so I can have what I want. — Pat Cadigan

Hardware And Software Quotes By Scott Adams

Think of humanity as a giant software program. Our bodies are the hardware and our ideas are the software. Sometimes our software gets a virus : Religious misinterpretations.
People who are infected with flawed religious ideas can infect others, especially their
children. The religions spread and mutate, until there are thousands of different religious ideas, most of them harmless, some healthy and helpful, but others quite deadly. When the deadly ones reach critical mass, they threaten the whole. — Scott Adams

Hardware And Software Quotes By Steve Jobs

The difference between the best worker on computer hardware and the average may be 2 to 1, if you're lucky. With automobiles, maybe 2 to 1. But in software, it's at least 25 to 1. The difference between the average programmer and a great one is at least that. The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world. And when you're in a field where the dynamic range is 25 to 1, boy, does it pay off. — Steve Jobs

Hardware And Software Quotes By Peter Thiel

Apple has a complex suite of proprietary technologies, both in hardware (like superior touchscreen materials) and software (like touchscreen interfaces purpose-designed for specific materials). — Peter Thiel

Hardware And Software Quotes By David Berlinski

Every computer divides itself into its hardware and its software, the machine host to its algorithm, the human being to his mind. It is hardly surprising that men and women have done what computers now do long before computers could do anything at all. The dissociation between mind and matter in men and machines is very striking; it suggests that almost any stable and reliable organization of material objects can execute an algorithm and so come to command some form of intelligence. — David Berlinski

Hardware And Software Quotes By John Douillard

Human life has the software and hardware to go the distance. All we need to do is know our nature and mimic nature's way. Do less and accomplish more; do nothing and accomplish everything is nature's secret to the miracle of life. — John Douillard

Hardware And Software Quotes By Christopher Strachey

It has long been my personal view that the separation of practical and theoretical work is artificial and injurious. Much of the practical work done in computing, both in software and in hardware design, is unsound and clumsy because the people who do it have not any clear understanding of the fundamental design principles of their work. Most of the abstract mathematical and theoretical work is sterile because it has no point of contact with real computing. — Christopher Strachey

Hardware And Software Quotes By Alex Kerr

No foreign architect of stature, such as I. M. Pei, resides in Japan. Foreign architects come to Japan on short-term contracts, erect a skyscraper or a museum, and then leave. But subtle and sophisticated approaches to services and design - the core elements of modern building technology - cannot be transmitted in this way. Japan is left with the empty shells of architectural ideas, the hardware without the software. — Alex Kerr

Hardware And Software Quotes By Julie Holland

I was enraptured by the brain and how it could misfire, but it wasn't just the hardware that intrigued me, it was the software with the bugs. — Julie Holland

Hardware And Software Quotes By Christopher Galvin

You have to give credit where credit's due. Steve [Jobs] has been probably the single hardware/software forward-looking thinker and executor in our lifetime as an individual. He's quite a brilliant innovator. — Christopher Galvin

Hardware And Software Quotes By Yuri Milner

The hardware and the software used in the Breakthrough project will be compatible with other telescopes around the world, so they too can search for intelligent life. — Yuri Milner

Hardware And Software Quotes By Sam Altman

All the reasons that have made software so successful are beginning to happen with hardware. So much can be done so quickly, prototyped so rapidly, and the costs are so low. — Sam Altman

Hardware And Software Quotes By Kedar Joshi

There is only one real computer - the universe - whose hardware is made up of non-spatial states of consciousness and software is made up of superhuman as well as non-superhuman thoughts. — Kedar Joshi

Hardware And Software Quotes By Jon Evans

As hardware doubles its density every 18-24 months, courtesy of Moore's Law, and as software eats the world, technology will replace a broad swathe of jobs outright - from burger-flippers to diagnosticians - and atomize many others from full-time positions into gigs performed by many fungible workers. Tech, in short, will eat jobs. — Jon Evans

Hardware And Software Quotes By Ivan Illich

Universal education through schooling is not feasible. It would be no more feasible if it were attempted by means of alternative institutions built on the style of present schools. Neither new attitudes of teachers toward their pupils nor the proliferation of educational hardware or software (in classroom or bedroom), nor finally the attempt to expand the pedagogue's responsibility until it engulfs his pupils' lifetimes will deliver universal education. The current search for new educational funnels must be reversed into the search for their institutional inverse: educational webs which heighten the opportunity for each one to transform each moment of his living into one of learning, sharing, and caring. — Ivan Illich

Hardware And Software Quotes By Ray Kurzweil

Based on the above analyses, it is reasonable to expect the hardware that can emulate human-brain functionality to be available for approximately one thousand dollars by around 2020. As we will discuss in chapter 4, the software that will replicate that functionality will take about a decade longer. However, the exponential growth of the price-performance, capacity, and speed of our hardware technology will continue during that period, so by 2030 it will take a village of human brains (around one thousand) to match a thousand dollars' worth of computing. By 2050, one thousand dollars of computing will exceed the processing power of all human brains on Earth. Of course, this figure includes those brains still using only biological neurons. — Ray Kurzweil

Hardware And Software Quotes By Walt Mossberg

Just remember: you're not a 'dummy,' no matter what those computer books claim. The real dummies are the people who-though technically expert-couldn't design hardware and software that's usable by normal consumers if their lives depended upon it. — Walt Mossberg

Hardware And Software Quotes By Steve Jobs

We had the hardware expertise, the industrial design expertise and the software expertise, including iTunes. One of the biggest insights we have was that we decided not to try to manage your music library on the iPod, but to manage it in iTunes. Other companies tried to do everything on the device itself and made it so complicated that it was useless. — Steve Jobs

Hardware And Software Quotes By Howard Rheingold

Technology no longer consists just of hardware or software or even services, but of communities. Increasingly, community is a part of technology, a driver of technology, and an emergent effect of technology. — Howard Rheingold

Hardware And Software Quotes By Tony Fadell

Google has the business resources, global scale and platform reach to accelerate Nest growth across hardware, software and services for the home globally. — Tony Fadell

Hardware And Software Quotes By Thomas King

While the hardware of civilization - iron pots, blankets, guns - was welcomed by Native people, the software of Protestantism and Catholicism - original sin, universal damnation, atonement, and subligation - was not, and Europeans were perplexed, offended, and incensed that Native peoples had the temerity to take their goods and return their gods. — Thomas King

Hardware And Software Quotes By Walt Mossberg

We need a wireless mobile device ecosystem that mirrors the PC/Internet ecosystem, one where the consumers' purchase of network capacity is separate from their purchase of the hardware and software they use on that network. It will take government action, or some disruptive technology or business innovation, to get us there. — Walt Mossberg

Hardware And Software Quotes By Barry Schuler

By being able to write a genome and plug it into an organism, the software, if you will, changes the hardware. — Barry Schuler

Hardware And Software Quotes By Steven Magee

To get Windows 10 reliable, I had to lobotomise the installed software and USB devices. — Steven Magee

Hardware And Software Quotes By Douglas Rushkoff

Google did a great job hacking the Web to create search - and then monetizing search with advertising. And Apple did a great job humanizing hardware and software so that formerly daunting computers and applications could become consumer-friendly devices - even a lifestyle brand. — Douglas Rushkoff

Hardware And Software Quotes By Mike Cernovich

Imagine a computer. The monitor, keyboard, and processor are the hardware. Without any software to run it, your computer would be worthless. Your body is your hardware and your mindset is your operating system. It gives you access to the power of the hardware, and determines what software you can run. It lets you get the most out of your computer, allowing you to balance your checkbook and even create 3-D designs. Your mindset determines how you perceive and interact with the world. — Mike Cernovich

Hardware And Software Quotes By Charles Stross

You wouldn't believe the scope for mischief that the Beast of Redmond unintentionally builds into its Office software by letting it execute macros that have unlimited access to the hardware. I remember a particular post-prandial PowerPoint presentation where I was one of only two survivors (and the other wasn't entirely human). However, this is the first time I've seen a Word document eat a man's soul. — Charles Stross

Hardware And Software Quotes By Peter F. Drucker

The creative imitator looks at products or services from the viewpoint of the customer. IBM's personal computer is practically indistinguishable from the Apple in its technical features, but IBM from the beginning offered the customer programs and software. Apple maintained traditional computer distribution through specialty stores. IBM - in a radical break with its own traditions - developed all kinds of distribution channels, specialty stores, major retailers like Sears, Roebuck, its own retail stores, and so on. It made it easy for the consumer to buy and it made it easy for the consumer to use the product. These, rather than hardware features, were the "innovations" that gave IBM the personal computer market. — Peter F. Drucker

Hardware And Software Quotes By Adam Osborne

With bundled machines you can throw away the hardware and keep the software, and it's still a good buy. — Adam Osborne

Hardware And Software Quotes By Craig Venter

In a biological system, the software builds its own hardware, but design is critical, and if you start with digital information, it has to be really accurate. — Craig Venter

Hardware And Software Quotes By Henry Samueli

We need to get smarter about hardware and software innovation in order to get the most value from the emerging Internet of Things. — Henry Samueli

Hardware And Software Quotes By Satya Nadella

We're not in hardware for hardware's sake. We're in hardware to be able to express all our platform and productivity software in a way that's unique. — Satya Nadella

Hardware And Software Quotes By Masayoshi Son

I would say that hardware is the bone of the head, the skull. The semiconductor is the brain within the head. The software is the wisdom and data is the knowledge. — Masayoshi Son

Hardware And Software Quotes By Henry Petroski

The most amazing achievement of the computer software industry is its continuing cancellation of the steady and staggering gains made by the computer hardware industry. — Henry Petroski

Hardware And Software Quotes By Satya Nadella

In the past, there was hardware, software, and platforms on top of which there were applications. Now they're getting conflated. That is all going to get disrupted by the move to the cloud. — Satya Nadella

Hardware And Software Quotes By Vint Cerf

For systems in which you already have a lot of hardware and software, change is difficult. That's why apps are so popular. — Vint Cerf

Hardware And Software Quotes By Studs Terkel

I'm not a Luddite completely; I believe in refrigerators to cool my martinis, and washing machines because I hate to see women smacking their laundry against a rock. When I hear about hardware, I think of pots and pans, and when I hear about software, I think of sheets and towels. — Studs Terkel

Hardware And Software Quotes By Sergey Brin

Technology is an inherent democratizer. Because of the evolution of hardware and software, you're able to scale up almost anything. It means that in our lifetime everyone may have tools of equal power. — Sergey Brin

Hardware And Software Quotes By Michio Kaku

The real bottleneck is software. Creating software can be done only the old-fashioned way. A human -sitting quietly in a chair with a pencil, paper and laptop- is going to have to write the codes ... One can mass-produce hardware and increase it's power by piling on more and more chips, but you cannot mass-produce the brain. — Michio Kaku

Hardware And Software Quotes By Michael Arrington

Talking about Apple v. Microsoft without mentioning the Internet and the browser is like talking about WWII without talking about the nuke. Framing the conversation just in terms of open v. closed operating systems, the quality of the hardware or software or who the CEO was, is silly. — Michael Arrington

Hardware And Software Quotes By Patricia Churchland

Even philosophers who did not mind psychology, claimed the brain was irrelevant because it was the hardware, and we only need to know about the software. — Patricia Churchland

Hardware And Software Quotes By Jean-Claude Biver

The hardware and the software will come from Silicon Valley. But the watch case, the dial, the design, the idea, the crown, that part of the watch will, of course, be Swiss. — Jean-Claude Biver

Hardware And Software Quotes By Andrew Schwab

Hardware had to be researched, purchased, secured, integrated, tracked, and disposed of. Software had to be licensed, configured, patched, updated, and eventually replaced. Networks had to be built, secured, upgraded, and inevitably rebuilt. And every component interacted with every other component in curious and unexpected ways, with unexpected occasionally culminating in catastrophic. The — Andrew Schwab

Hardware And Software Quotes By Chris Espinosa

For a business plan written when the hardware was a wire-wrapped board and the software was three demos on a graphics substrate, it was pretty close. — Chris Espinosa

Hardware And Software Quotes By Fred Brooks

Software and hardware design is less different than software designers think, but more different than hardware designers think. — Fred Brooks

Hardware And Software Quotes By Marshall McLuhan

It is not brains or intelligence that is needed to cope with the problems with Plato and Aristotle and all of their successors to the present have failed to confront. What is needed is a readiness to undervalue the world altogether. This is only possible for a Christian ... All technologies and all cultures, ancient and modern, are part of our immediate expanse. There is hope in this diversity since it creates vast new possibilities of detachment and amusement at human gullibility and self-deception. There is no harm in reminding ourselves from time to time that the "Prince of this World" is a great P.R. man, a great salesman of new hardware and software, a great electric engineer, and a great master of the media. It is his master stroke to be not only environmental but invisible for the environmental is invincibly persuasive when ignored. — Marshall McLuhan

Hardware And Software Quotes By Michael Morell

Companies made these decisions about encryption when they were finding it very difficult to sell their products overseas because the [Edward] Snowden disclosures created the impression that the U.S. government was inside this hardware and software produced by them. They needed to do something to deal with the perception. — Michael Morell

Hardware And Software Quotes By Ward Cunningham

When I was at Tek, I was frustrated that computer hardware was being improved faster than computer software. I wanted to invent some software that was completely different, that would grow and change as it was used. That's how wiki came about. — Ward Cunningham

Hardware And Software Quotes By Ashlee Vance

What Musk had done that the rival automakers missed or didn't have the means to combat was turn Tesla into a lifestyle. It did not just sell someone a car. It sold them an image, a feeling they were tapping into the future, a relationship. Apple did the same thing decades ago with the Mac and then again with the iPod and iPhone. Even those who were not religious about their affiliation to Apple were sucked into its universe once they bought the hardware and downloaded software like iTunes. This — Ashlee Vance

Hardware And Software Quotes By Wen Jiabao

Cooperation is just like two pagodas - one hardware and one software. Combined, we can take the leadership position in the world. — Wen Jiabao

Hardware And Software Quotes By Louis V. Gerstner Jr.

What we believe is going to be very important is the delivery of traditional software and services and hardware over the Net. That's a form of electronic marketplace. — Louis V. Gerstner Jr.

Hardware And Software Quotes By Terence McKenna

Cultural conditioning is like bad software. Over and over it's diddled with and re-written so that it can just run on the next attempt. But there is cultural hardware, and it's that cultural hardware, otherwise known as authentic being, that we are propelled toward by the example of the shaman and the techniques of the shaman ... Shamanism therefore is a call to authenticity. — Terence McKenna

Hardware And Software Quotes By Brent Schlender

While Steve's gadgets and computers drew the most attention, the software that made them go was every bit as important. Steve always said that Apple's primary competitive advantage was that it created the whole widget: the finely tuned symbiosis between the hardware and the software together defined a superior user experience. In the PC world, hardware and software technologies came from different companies that didn't always even get along, including IBM and the PC-clone manufacturers, Microsoft, and Intel. — Brent Schlender

Hardware And Software Quotes By Paul Otellini

In order for us to deliver this we have to integrate the big-screen capability, the PC capability, and the Internet experience. This is a combination of hardware and software that delivers a new media experience. — Paul Otellini

Hardware And Software Quotes By Niklaus Wirth

Software gets slower faster than hardware gets faster. (Or, sometimes known by] Grove [the head of Intel] giveth and Gates [the head of Microsoft] taketh away.) — Niklaus Wirth

Hardware And Software Quotes By Nathan Myhrvold

The NeXT purchase is too little too late. The Apple of the past was an innovative company that used software and hardware technology together to redefine the way people experienced computing. That Apple is already dead. Very adroit moves might be able to save the brand name. A company with the letters A-P-P-L-E in its name might survive, but it won't be the Apple of yore. — Nathan Myhrvold
