Geere Appliances quotes by Vint Cerf
#1. I expect to see a lot of household appliances on the Net by 2010, as well as autos and other mobile devices. #Quote by Vint Cerf
Geere Appliances quotes by Steve Jobs
#2. Design is not limited to fancy new gadgets. Our family just bought a new washing machine and dryer. We didn't have a very good one so we spent a little time looking at them. It turns out that the Americans make washers and dryers all wrong. The Europeans make them much better – but they take twice as long to do clothes! It turns out that they wash them with about a quarter as much water and your clothes end up with a lot less detergent on them. Most important, they don't trash your clothes. They use a lot less soap, a lot less water, but they come out much cleaner, much softer, and they last a lot longer. We spent some time in our family talking about what's the trade-off we want to make. We ended up talking a lot about design, but also about the values of our family. Did we care most about getting our wash done in an hour versus an hour and a half? Or did we care most about our clothes feeling really soft and lasting longer? Did we care about using a quarter of the water? We spent about two weeks talking about this every night at the dinner table. We'd get around to that old washer-dryer discussion. And the talk was about design. We ended up opting for these Miele appliances, made in Germany. They're too expensive, but that's just because nobody buys them in this country. They are really wonderfully made and one of the few products we've bought over the last few years that we're all really happy about. These guys really thought the process through. They did such a great job #Quote by Steve Jobs
Geere Appliances quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#3. Byron, as he burns on, sees more and more of this pattern. He learns how to make contact with other kinds of electric appliances, in homes, in factories and out in the streets. Each has something to tell him. The pattern gathers in his soul (Seele, as the core of the earlier carbon filament was known in Germany), and the grander and clearer it grows, the more desperate Byron gets. Someday he will know everything, and still be as impotent as before. His youthful dreams of organizing all the bulbs in the world seem impossible now - the Grid is wide open, all messages can be overheard, and there are more than enough traitors out on the line. Prophets traditionally don't last long - they are either killed outright, or given an accident serious enough to make them stop and think, and most often they do pull back. But on Byron has been visited an even better fate. He is condemned to go on forever, knowing the truth and powerless to change anything. No longer will he seek to get off the wheel. His anger and frustration will grow without limit, and he will find himself, poor perverse bulb, enjoying it. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Geere Appliances quotes by Ilona Andrews
#4. In that case, it's good that you're a human Cuisinart," she said.
"I'm sorry?"
"A Cuisinart. It's an appliance from the Broken. You put vegetables into it, push a button, and it chops them into tiny pieces."
Richard frowned. "Why would you need an appliance to chop vegetables? Wouldn't it be easier to chop them with a knife?"
"It's meant to save time," she explained.
"Does it?"
"Well, cleaning it usually eats up most of the time you save on chopping."
"So you're telling me that I'm useless."
"It's a neat gadget!"
"And I'm hard to clean, apparently."
She checked his face. Tiny sparks danced in his eyes. He was pulling her leg. Well. If that's how it is ... "Considering last night's argument, I think that you're remarkably difficult to clean."
"There probably is a retort to this that's not off-color," he said. "But I can't think of one. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Geere Appliances quotes by Neal Stephenson
#5. Therapies administered included but were not limited to: turning things off, then on again; picking them up a couple of inches and then dropping them; turning off nonessential appliances in this and other rooms; removing lids and wiggling circuit boards; extracting small contaminants, such as insects and their egg cases, with nonconducting chopsticks; cable-wiggling; incense-burning; putting folded-up pieces of paper beneath table legs; drinking tea and sulking; invoking unseen powers; sending runners to other rooms, buildings, or precincts with exquisitely calligraphed notes and waiting for them to come back carrying spare parts in dusty, yellowed cardboard boxes; and a similarly diverse suite of troubleshooting techniques in the realm of software. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Geere Appliances quotes by William Tecumseh Sherman
#6. You mistake, too, the people of the North. They are a peaceable people but an earnest people, and they will fight, too. They are not going to let this country be destroyed without a mighty effort to save it ... Besides, where are your men and appliances of war to contend against them? #Quote by William Tecumseh Sherman
Geere Appliances quotes by J. K. Bharavi
#7. Be patient, if thou wouldst thy ends accomplish; for like patience is there no appliance effective of success, producing certainly abundant fruit of actions, never damped by failure, conquering all impediments. #Quote by J. K. Bharavi
Geere Appliances quotes by Francis Dacosta
#8. They will be moisture sensors, valve controls, "smart dust," parking meters, home appliances, and so on. These types of end devices almost never contain the processors, memory, hard drives, and other features needed to run a protocol stack. #Quote by Francis Dacosta
Geere Appliances quotes by Trip Hawkins
#9. [The PlayStation 2 is a] historic, a mass-market appliance that fundamentally changes society in the way the printing press did. #Quote by Trip Hawkins
Geere Appliances quotes by Chris Geere
#10. I was born in Cambridge but brought up in and around Winchester, in Hampshire. I've also lived in Hong Kong and America. #Quote by Chris Geere
Geere Appliances quotes by Donald A. Norman
#11. Simplicity design axiom: The complexity of the information appliance is that of the task, not the tool. The technology is invisible. #Quote by Donald A. Norman
Geere Appliances quotes by Nate Berkus
#12. They used to tease me at the 'Oprah' show, 'Are you really going to do another white Shaker kitchen, with white subway tile and stainless steel appliances?' And my answer is, 'I can vary it a bit, but I'm never going to err from classic materials.' #Quote by Nate Berkus
Geere Appliances quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#13. Every day our garments become more assimilated to ourselves, receiving the impress of the wearer's character, until we hesitate tolay them aside without such delay and medical appliances and some such solemnity even as our bodies. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Geere Appliances quotes by N. Robert Hammer
#14. Product pricing is aligned to the way customers want to acquire their solutions and are delivered via different delivery models including appliances, the cloud, or as on-premise software solutions. #Quote by N. Robert Hammer
Geere Appliances quotes by Wendell Berry
#15. This much is clear to me: insofar as I am capable of feeling such pleasures as I believe Nick felt, I am strong; insofar as I am dependent on the pleasures made available by my salary and the things I own, I am weak. I feel much more secure in those pleasures for which I am dependent on the world, as Nick was for most of his, than in those for which I am dependent on the government or on a power company or on the manufacturers of appliances. And I am far from conceding anything to those who assume that the poor or anyone else can be improved by recourse to that carnival of waste and ostentation and greed known as "our high standard of living." As Thoreau so well knew, and so painstakingly tried to show us, what a man most needs is not a knowledge of how to get more, but a knowledge of the most he can do without, and of how to get along without it. The essential cultural discrimination is not between having and not having or haves and have-nots, but between the superfluous and the indispensable. Wisdom, it seems to me, is always poised upon the knowledge of minimums; it might be thought to be the art of minimums. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Geere Appliances quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#16. Our rockets can find Halley's comet, and fly to Venus with amazing accuracy, but side by side with these scientific and technical triumphs is an obvious lack of efficiency in using scientific achievements for economic needs ... many Soviet household appliances are of poor quality. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Geere Appliances quotes by Michelle De Kretser
#17. The past was not always past enough here. It was like living in a house acquired for its clean angles and gleaming appliances, and discovering a bricked-up foor at which, faint but insistent, the sound of knocking could be heard. #Quote by Michelle De Kretser
Geere Appliances quotes by Scott Bradfield
#18. The body, I have often thought, is like a promise. You keep things in it. Those things are covert, immediate, yours. There is something lustrous about them. They emit energy, like radium or appliances. They can be replaced, repaired or simply discarded. The promise of the body is very firm and intact. It's the only promise we can count on, and we can't really count on it very much. #Quote by Scott Bradfield
Geere Appliances quotes by Ken Keyes Jr.
#19. If your washing machine stops working and you're addicted to appliances that work, you'll get upset and you will suffer. If you prefer that your appliances work well, then when your washing machine breaks down you won't compound the problem by superimposing your uncomfortable emotions on the situation. #Quote by Ken Keyes Jr.
Geere Appliances quotes by Chip Giller
#20. When you're making a purchasing decision around an appliance or a car or a home, that's when to take the environment into mind, but don't dwell so much on paper versus plastic. #Quote by Chip Giller
Geere Appliances quotes by Joan Crawford
#21. Most of the bankers also felt that women are more emotional, leas stable than men.
Not true! I think by nature a woman is more stable. Life gives her so many different things to cope with, and she learns almost from infancy to cope and not to let it show. A woman who has married and brought up children has had a thousand emergencies - illnesses, broken plumbing, appliances refusing to operate,the children's naughtiness, her husband's moods, the bills - and has trained herself to take them all astride. #Quote by Joan Crawford
Geere Appliances quotes by Terry Pratchett
#22. No real sunrise could paint the sky Surgical Appliance Pink. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Geere Appliances quotes by William Bridges
#23. Treating ourselves like appliances that can be unplugged and plugged in again at will or cars that stop and start with the twist of a key, we have forgotten the importance of fallow time and winter and rests in music. We have abandoned a whole system of dealing with the neutral zone through ritual, and we have tried to deal with personal change as though it were a matter of some kind of readjustment. #Quote by William Bridges
Geere Appliances quotes by Adam Carolla
#24. You measure a good song the same way you measure architecture, fashion, or any other artistic endeavor. Time. You know when you see a picture of yourself from the eighties with a horrible hairdo and some stone-washed jeans and you think, "How embarrassing - what the fuck was I thinking? Why didn't somebody stop me?" It's the same thing Mick Jagger and David Bowie should be thinking every time they hear their cover of "Dancing in the Streets." The point is, at the time it seemed like a good idea, just like kitchens with burnt-orange Formica and avocado appliances, den walls covered with fake brick paneling, and segregation - all horrible decisions that we now universally recognize as wrong. But somehow when it comes to music, we can't just admit we made a mistake with "Emotional Rescue." There's always some dick who defends the past. "Hey, man, I lost my virginity to 'Careless Whisper.' " I'm sure there was somebody who got laid for the first time on 9/11 but they don't get a boner when they see the footage of the planes going into the tower. #Quote by Adam Carolla
Geere Appliances quotes by John Dewey
#25. Since language represents the physical conditions that have been subjected to the maximum transformation in the interests of social life - physical things which have lost their original quality in becoming social tools - it is appropriate that language should play a large part compared with other appliances. #Quote by John Dewey
Geere Appliances quotes by Bill Vaughan
#26. The wonderful world of home appliances now makes it possible to cook indoors with charcoal and outdoors with gas. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Geere Appliances quotes by John Ajvide Lindqvist
#27. It was like a blackout in reverse. Since around nine o'clock, no lamps could be switched off, no electrical appliances powered down. If you tried to pull out the plug there was an alarming crackling sound and sparks flew between the outlet and the plug, preventing the circuit from being broken. #Quote by John Ajvide Lindqvist
Geere Appliances quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#28. Wasn't I proud of all we accomplished–the prestigious home in the Hudson Valley, the apartment in Manhattan, the eight phone lines, the friends and the picnics and the parties, the weekends spent roaming the aisles of some box-shaped superstore of our choice, buying ever more appliances on credit? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life–so why did I feel like none of it resembled me? Why did I feel so overwhelmed with duty, tired of being the primary breadwinner and the housekeeper, and the social coordinator and the dog walker and the wife and the soon-to-be mother, and - somewhere in my stolen moments–a writer…? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Geere Appliances quotes by Betty Friedan
#29. The suburban housewife - she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife - freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother had found true feminine fulfillment. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Geere Appliances quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#30. Human beings, to me, are rather like electrical appliances that need to be charged regularly, and prayer is a way of plugging into that charge. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Geere Appliances quotes by Betty Friedan
#31. What Friedan gave to the world was, "the problem that has no name." She not only named it but dissected it. The advances of science, the development of labor-saving appliances, the development of the suburbs: all had come together to offer women in the 1950s a life their mothers had scarcely dreamed of, free from rampant disease, onerous drudgery, noxious city streets. But the green lawns and big corner lots were isolating, the housework seemed to expand to fill the time available, and polio and smallpox were replaced by depression and alcoholism. All that was covered up in a kitchen conspiracy of denial ...
[i]nstead the problem was with the mystique of waxed floors and perfectly applied lipstick. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Geere Appliances quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#32. I don't want to be married anymore. In daylight hours, I refused that thought, but at night it would consume me. What a catastrophe. How could I be such a criminal jerk as to proceed this deep into a marriage, only to leave it? We'd only just bought this house a year ago. Hadn't I wanted this nice house? Hadn't I loved it? So why was I haunting its halls every night now, howling like Medea? Wasn't I proud of all we'd accumulated - the prestigious home in the Hudson Valley, the apartment in Manhattan, the eight phone lines, the friends and the picnics and the parties, the weekends spent roaming the aisles of some box-shaped superstore of our choice, buying ever some appliances on credit? I had actively participated in every moment of the creation of this life - so why did I feel like none of it resembled me? Why did I feel so overwhelmed with duty, tired of being the primary breadwinner and the housekeeper and the social coordinator and the dog-walker and the wife and the soon-to-be mother, and - somewhere in my stolen moments - a writer...? I don't want to be married anymore. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Geere Appliances quotes by Dave Barry
#33. She goes to Frederick's of Hollywood at the mall and purchases an explicit lingerie outfit so sheer that you could read an appliance warranty through it in an unlit closet. #Quote by Dave Barry
Geere Appliances quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#34. You might be a redneck if you have flowers planted in a bathroom appliance in your front yard. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
