Quotes

"We identified Piston as having the superior OpenStack product offering that can help our customers achieve their business goals in a secure and simple deployment of private cloud. We've developed a lot of respect for Piston the company, the professionalism of its people and the Piston OpenStack product. Now, we're excited to bring Piston's innovative turn-key OpenStack product to help drive business productivity in Europe with innovation in the cloud space."
Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics (and former Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine and bestselling author of The Long Tail) commented "When we first engaged with the Sifteo team, and saw their skillset, experience, and IP portfolio, we immediately recognized the impact they would have working with us to transform and grow the consumer drone market. Their consumer electronics experience and deep product skills complement our technology perfectly. We are thrilled to have the resources of both groups together to lead what we believe will be a billion dollar market over the next few years."
"We built for Xbox because it's the only platform that's going to work in the front room" he said. Madefire debuted four years ago but has focused on much slower growth than its better-known competitor, Comixology
"Since we opened our Motion Book Tool we've been staggered at the appetite for digital comics," said Ben Wolstenholme, CEO of Madefire. "From Print comics to Motion Books, and from new creators to established studios like DC, it's all on Madefire. It's taken years, but we've now rolled out the most advanced comic book platform in the world and made it open to all."
