Maribel Lopez, Lopez Research: “Connected doesn’t mean smart. Businesses still have to put thought into what type of experience a connected device should provide before they buy hardware that could be meaningless.”

Brian Katz, VMware: “The computer is incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid. Man is unbelievably slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. The marriage of the two is a force beyond calculation.” (Leo Cherne)
