–          Evgeny Morozov, author of “To Save Everything, Click Here: The Folly of Technological Solutionism”
“I’ll put our scientists up against anybody’s scientists. Between what we have in Bing and MSR [Microsoft Research] we’ve got some very smart people working on some very big problems. . . . They’re [Google] in a different position to what we are, 97 percent of their revenue comes from advertising. I think 97 percent of ours doesn’t. We can probably be a little bit more disruptive to the search category than they can, or that they’re willing to be.
–          Adam Sohn, Microsoft
“Where games traditionally model the real world, organisations must now take the opportunity for their real world to emulate games.
