One Good Reason to Collect Quotes

Here's a great one.

Howard Lindzon has a witty and insightful blog, and he's Canadian. In questioning the wisdom of betting on Microsoft if you are in fact betting on CEO Ballmer, he writes:

$500 fully subsidized with a plan! I said that is the most expensive phone in the world and it doesn’t appeal to business customers because it doesn’t have a keyboard, which makes it not a very good email machine…. Right now we’re selling millions and millions and millions of phones a year, Apple is selling zero phones a year. In six months, they’ll have the most expensive phone by far ever in the marketplace and let’s see…what’s the expression? Let’s see how the competition goes.”
–Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on the iPhone, January 2007

Live and learn.
