When you’re young, you look at television and think, There’s a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that’s not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That’s a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It’s the truth.

Steve Jobs, in interview to Wired, 1996.

one of the main technologies that keeps java afloat, and reasons why java is used today, is android. (so oracle needs to review their patent claims and just let people use java)

and if oracle wants java to be a player in internet of things business, they need to wish android success in that niche instead of suing google constantly.

if you want to make something, what you do, good, then may be you should not sometimes do that.

there are people, be they acquaintances, business or relationship partners, who don’t understand, don’t value, don’t appreciate the way we do that. and we do that that way in order to make something good, to make good work, to make things better.

well, they may need something else. does it make sense to make what they want if that’s not good? i don’t think so.

i don’t want to endeavour for something i won’t like after all. no, it’s better to make something good and don’t waist time.

if I were a leader of a software development company, I would make sure every project has a team which focused not on new features, not on development of the product, but on improving it.

I have an impression companies don’t invest in improvements, as if they cannot afford doing that. But if they were, they would have valuable advantage on the market.

Existing #franchise #dealers have a fundamental #conflict of interest between selling #gasoline #cars, which constitute the vast majority of their business, and selling the new #technology of electric cars. It is impossible for them to explain the advantages of going electric without simultaneously undermining their traditional #business. http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/tesla-approach-distributing-and-servicing-cars #tesla
