Quoted:

"Look, the skill of Bill Gates is he's so brilliant at his detail that when he slips in the salesmanship, most of us think, 'Oh my God, he must be right.' ... He talked on the one hand, and I loved it, he talked about [Windows] Vista [being] delayed as if delay was normal, and then he started mocking me for delaying PS3 [PlayStation 3]."
-- Howard Stringer, Sony's chief executive, in an interview with Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal.
