2006: Top 10 Memorable Quotes

It's that time of year again, when we at Byte and Switch scan articles from the 12 months past for memorable quotes from the lips of industry moguls, mavens, and mavericks.

Here's our Top 10 list, in order of impact:

  • No. 10: "You can't hide that ball anymore." -- Bob Brennan, COO of Iron Mountain, in reference to the compliance challenges users face.

  • No. 9: "We just spent $4.1 billion to acquire StorageTek. It doesn't make sense for us to sell it off." -- David Yen, EVP Storage, Sun Microsystems.
