In London, which rightly prides itself on the vibrancy of its literary cottage industry, Amis is the Steve Jobs of book promoters, and his product rollouts are as carefully managed as anything Apple dreams up. — Graydon Carter

I was lucky – I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents’ garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years, Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. — Steve Jobs

More than ever, Apple can make a difference in any organization, including an enterprise situation where there is a mixed bag of operating systems …. We really feel like it’s a new era. — Ellen Hancock

Many industry insiders agree that Apple has kept Boot Camp on the shelf, and only released it in response to those efforts. — Scott Carpenter

The launch of iPhone is very possibly bigger than the launch of the first Apple II or the first Mac. Steve Jobs’s genius is his ability to use technology to create products that define fundamental cultural shifts. — John Sculley

Here is my general approach to the energy companies. You have already charged the utilities a 50 percent credit penalty for the power they were buying from you. You’re charging us a penalty. You’re not going to get two bites of the apple here. — Gray Davis

SOPA has been described as hitting a carpet tack with a sledgehammer. But technology was a sledgehammer to the music industry, one that allowed digital distributors like Apple to grow rich. — Peter Lerangis

Pessimism is as American as apple pie-frozen apple pie with a slice of processed cheese. — George F. Will

You need to be naive enough to do things differently.

However, we thought of Business Model Generation as a product, not just a book – similar to Apple products. — Alexander Osterwalder

I was pretty shocked at the appearance of the Galaxy S phone and the extent to which it appeared to copy Apple products and the problems that would create for us. — Phil Schiller

The period when Steve Jobs was not there was one of the most difficult periods in the company’s history. When he returned, he set Apple back on a positive trajectory again. — Rakesh Khurana

The reason that Apple is able to create products like the iPad is because we’ve always tried to be at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts. — Steve Jobs

I read the Steve Jobs book, and that kind of changed everything. I’ve been, like, an Apple geek my whole life and have always seen him as a hero. But reading the book, and learning about how he built the company, and maintaining that corporate culture and all that, I think that influenced me a lot. — G-Eazy

The people who are getting 3-D printers at home are pioneers, kind of like the people who bought Apple IIs in 1981. Adults are usually the last people to get it. The kids are like, ‘Get out of my way, I want at this thing.’ They immediately start getting creative. — Bre Pettis

Ms. Apple was chosen based on her extensive credentials and experience in the field of historic preservation and cultural tourism. — Steve Davies

But French legislators aren’t just looking at Apple. They’re looking ahead to a time when most entertainment is online, a shift with profound consequences for consumers and culture in general. French lawmakers want to protect the consumer from one or two companies holding the keys to all of its culture, just as Microsoft holds the keys to today’s desktop computers… Apple may not qualify as a literal monopoly — there are lots of ways to get music and buying online accounts for only a small fraction of total music sales. But the sliver it does control it controls almost completely, and it’s not out of the question to suggest that this sliver will ultimately become the only way people will buy music in the future. — Leander Kahney

I remember endless Apple v. Windows debates in the early ’90s when I was in college. Macs were better machines, everyone said; the whole Office thing was a huge pain.

Yes, Steve will be at Apple Expo with other members of Apple’s executive team. — Bill Evans

When I left Apple, it had $2 billion of cash. It was the most profitable computer company in the world – not just personal computers – and Apple was the number one selling computer. — John Sculley

Standing beneath the white light of an Apple store is like standing on a Stanley Kubrick movie set. His ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ predicted Jobs and a future where technology was our friend. Kubrick, of course, didn’t like what he saw. And occasionally, I have my doubts. — Wesley Morris

One of the things that has gotten our interest is the fact that Apple only has a couple percentage points of PC market share. Apple doesn’t need to do a lot to have meaningful gains. The new operating system clearly ought to help them. — Zach Shafran

When you think of a company building its brand, you automatically think of things like Apple or Sony?larger companies where the company’s name is really the brand. When I say Kraft, you probably think of macaroni. — Jessica Dyer

Basically the market is responding to the latest earnings reports and waiting to see what happens with Apple Computer after the bell. — Peter Cardillo

It wasn’t until the Apple Macintosh that people understood what true hardware-software integration was about.

Right from the transition, Fox had the point of view that he simply didn’t want to run the risk of upending the apple cart. He had commitments to the private sector, and he was not able to separate that commitment – to avoid a crisis at the end of (his term) – from the idea of confronting the PRI. — Jorge Castaneda

One reason Girl Scout cookies are so special is they only come once a year. I think it probably reminds the soldiers of home. Girl Scout cookies are kind of like apple pie and the flag. — Mary Fischer

We are proposing that there is value in a totally new product category and a totally new set of questions. Just like the Apple II proposed, ‘Would you reasonably want a computer in your home if you weren’t an accountant or professional?’ That is the question Glass is asking, and I hope in the end that is how it will be judged. — Astro Teller

My initial reaction is, here you go, Apple has done it again. It’s a feat of tremendous industrial design … and they’ve maintained all the things that make the iPod good. … They’ve taken the best of iPod and made it smaller and improved both style and substance. — Mike Goodman

When I joined Time Inc., one of the things that was important to me was ensuring that our content is where consumers want to read it.

Imagine Him smiling down on you right now. Embrace His love. Remember, you are His most prized possession, the apple of His eye! — Victoria Osteen

I wouldn’t say that Mac OS X is a make or break product for Apple, but it’s close. But it can move Apple into spaces where it’s not been, or been strong, before. At MYOB, we look at our job as being translators: translating the language of business into the language of accounting. We need to use tools given to us by the authors of operating systems. The Mac side and OS X gives us a tool set that lets us do our jobs as translators better than any other tool set on the planet. It’s up to us to use those tools to move up to the next level. — Christopher Lee

My kids go to Apple Valley, and my son was trying to figure out whether to cheer for his dad or his friends. I told him, ‘Do both. It’s a win-win.’ I totally respect Jerry. I hope one day my kids will play for him. It’s almost easier to go up against someone you don’t like. — Mike Taylor

Apple doesn’t need to maximize book sales. It simply needs to keep publishers happy enough to maintain an impressive-sounding inventory of titles while waiting for entirely new forms of publishing to develop. — Virginia Postrel

We believe this would be a successful strategy, given the type of content and markets Apple has had success in. — Shaw Wu

Don King is as American as apple pie. He is America. — Ving Rhames

If we had a big Apple Records lawyers meeting or something, and we were sitting there and John was bored to death, he would start to (draw). The lawyers would later say. — Yoko Ono

I have realized over time that I missed the mark with HyperCard. I grew up in a box-centric culture at Apple. If I’d grown up in a network-centric culture, like Sun, HyperCard might have been the first Web browser. My blind spot at Apple prevented me from making HyperCard the first Web browser. — Bill Atkinson

One of the key challenges we face in our MP3 business is an industry-wide shortage of 1GB flash memory. Industry demand for high-capacity flash memory currently outstrips supply and this will impact availability of our 1G-byte flash MP3 players for the holiday quarter. The shortage of flash memory, according to industry analyst speculation, is primarily a result of a special deal that Apple has secured from a key supplier for the holiday season. — Craig McHugh

My kids are one, three, five and eight, and we are all horsey. The kids have got their ponies and can ride. Our foundation mare is special to our hearts. She was one of my first ever horses.

One of the greatest things that Apple and Jobs were very good at doing was daring to do the very different thing. It’s what I did with my cookbook, frankly. — Nathan Myhrvold

Adobe and Apple have collaborated a lot over the decades. There’s a lot more for us to do as well. — Kevin Lynch

Selling ‘cool’ stuff isn’t ‘cool’ if the stuff doesn’t work as advertised and Apple fails to comply with its obligations under its warranty and California laws.

I grew up with an Apple 2E – I had a deep, emotional attachment to that machine – and I loved doodling. — Gene Luen Yang

Moses? That’s a very humble beginning. I’m so happy for them, the more the merrier.

I’m so happy for her because that little Apple deserves a playmate. — Susan Sarandon

Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple tree or an oak. — Henry David Thoreau

There is a long future ahead for the Mac. I don’t think Apple would switch to a new processor core if they weren’t looking to carry the Mac ahead for the foreseeable future. — Ross Rubin

We remain focused on our primary goal of returning Apple to sustainable profitability, — Fred Anderson

Shares of companies like Apple and Motorola may have gotten ahead of themselves. But companies further down the supply chain are reasonably priced. — David Garrity

If an Internet company steals content, they shut it down. And let me tell you, Apple France, Yahoo France or Google France, none of them have gone out of business. — Harvey Weinstein

When I come to Chicago, I gorge myself. I get off the plane and start with Gene and Jude’s for two hot dogs with everything, swing by The Fudge Pot for a taffy apple and a turtle, chocolate clusters at Sarah’s Pastries and Candies and steak at Smith and Wollensky. I find time for Gino’s pizza within the next 12 hours. — James Belushi

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

We reiterate our ‘buy’ rating on Apple and our price target of $80 based on valuation of two times the company’s EPS growth rate of 20 percent, reasonable in view of its innovative products and strong product cycles, ownership of technology, strong balance sheet and financial management, increasing return on invested capital and potential for future positive surprises. — Andrew Neff

Right now most of the communication going on about technology seems unnecessarily obscure and overly technical. Apple still seems to do the best job. — Jay Chiat

Music labels would much rather have variable price, so they can charge more for hits and perhaps less for older tracks. Apple likes the $0.99 price because it is simple, uniform, not too high to discourage buyers, and very easy to administer and merchandise. — Ted Schadler

You could summarize everything I did at Apple was making tools to empower creative people. ‘QuickDraw’ empowered all these other programmers to now be able to sling stuff on the screen. The ‘Window Manager,’ ‘Event Manager,’ and ‘Menu Manager.’ Those are things that I worked on that were empowering other people. — Bill Atkinson

Millions of people aren’t going to run out and buy Macs, It could be an important first step toward making Apple more than just a niche player in the PC market. — Samir Bhavnani
