Quotes

"I don't think there's going to be one Rosie the robot doing everything in the home," said Brooks, according to the news release. "it's more likely to be a team of robots doing different things."
"Everything is relative," Clarence Kehoe, executive partner in the accounting firm Anchin Block & Anchin told Brooks. "for some people, i would think $1 million would be more than enough. for other people, i can tell you some of these clients spend more than $1 million in a year. it depends on the person, their lifestyle, and what they are used to."
