Eric Schmidt Quotes

Amazon has well passed any expectations of its ability to change distribution and marketing.
And the more broadband we can get globally, the better. It's better for the world; it's better for our advertisers; it's better for Google.
Countries that have the Internet already are not going to turn it off. And so the power of freedom, the power of ideas will spread, and it will change those societies in very dramatic ways.
Even though Google may do very well, there will always be an alternative to what Google is doing, and people will always have the free choice... because there's no way for us to prevent them from exercising that choice.
