Quotes

"We spoke with our customers and designed the tablet app with their needs in mind while understanding how they choose to use their devices. With an estimated tablet penetration rate of 50pc in Ireland by 2015, we understand that access to an intuitive and engaging tablet banking app is important to our growing customer base."
"Companies are expanding at such a rate that they often don’t have the internal skills set to keep up. Our StaaS solution helps companies to bridge that gap and ensure that their growth and service is not hindered."
"Over the past decade, YouTube, Blogger and Google+ have taken off, with communities springing up in every corner of the world. Because the growth of these communities has outpaced Orkut's growth, we've decided to bid Orkut farewell (or, tchau). We'll be focusing our energy and resources on making these other social platforms as amazing as possible for everyone who uses them."
"As independent companies, eBay and PayPal will enjoy added flexibility to pursue new market and partnership opportunities.”"
