Great quote

Just love this quote on business models …

“If you are not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.”

From I hope iAd fails

I think that replaces my past favorite quote …

I hope that when I die people say of me ‘Man, that guy sure owed me a lot of money

Great quote.

I also like John Ruskin’s “When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything”.

And on a lighter note a variation on the second one that I have always liked is Spike Milligan’s epitaph: “I told you I was ill”.

“If you are not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.”
