5 QUOTES WITH «ANDROID»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word android.
1
Stanley Bing
Could an android listen to the whining, requests for advancement, and entreaties for guidance and affection that pour from subordinates? Sure it could. Frankly, all that would be easier on the robot than it is on me.
2
Camille Paglia
A lesser complaint: hair extensions. There are moments on 'All My Children' when half the women actors, young and old, seem to be afflicted by android Barbie creep. All those thick swatches of lifeless strands clustering lankly round ladies' necks! Like orange tanning spray, this is a fashion fad that should be put out of its misery.
3
Sundar Pichai
Android is one of the most open systems I've ever seen. What makes android great is it's literally designed from the ground up to be customised in a very powerful way.
4
Sundar Pichai
Android was built to be very, very secure.
5
Richard Stallman
Android is very different from the GNU/Linux operating system because it contains very little of GNU. Indeed, just about the only component in common between android and GNU/Linux is Linux, the kernel.
