2006: Top 10 Memorable Quotes

Another year, another spate of soundbites. We offer you 10 of the best
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.

We think the statements below illustrate events and trends of 2006 better than thousands of words of reporting. (Well, maybe. Sometimes.)

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.

    Well said, Bob. And with the improvements at Iron Mountain, folk won't be able to claim Iron Mountain lost, sold, or burned that dang ball, either.

    See Smoke Clears for Iron Mountain.

  • 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.
