technology

Any smoothly functioning technology will have the appearance of magic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the human race wants to go to hell in a basket, technology can help it get there by jet.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
World trade means competition from anywhere; advancing technology encourages cross-industry competition. Consequently, strategic planning must consider who our future competitors will be, not only who is here today.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Money is like fire, an element as little troubled by moralizing as earth, air and water. Men can employ it as a tool or they can dance around it as if it were the incarnation of a god. Money votes socialist or monarchist, finds a profit in pornography or translations from the Bible, commissions Rembrandt and underwrites the technology of Auschwitz. It acquires its meaning from the uses to which it is put.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wildness and silence disappeared from the countryside, sweetness fell from the air, not because anyone wished them to vanish or fall but because throughways had to floor the meadows with cement to carry the automobiles which advancing technology produced. Tropical beaches turned into high-priced slums where thousand-room hotels elbowed each other for glimpses of once-famous surf not because those who loved the beaches wanted them there but because enormous jets could bring a million tourists every year -- and therefore did.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Commercial jazz, soap opera, pulp fiction, comic strips, the movies set the images, mannerisms, standards, and aims of the urban masses. In one way or another, everyone is equal before these cultural machines; like technology itself, the mass media are nearly universal in their incidence and appeal. They are a kind of common denominator, a kind of scheme for pre-scheduled, mass emotions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must learn to balance the material wonders of technology with the spiritual demands of our human race.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Technology is not an image of the world but a way of operating on reality. The nihilism of technology lies not only in the fact that it is the most perfect expression of the will to power... but also in the fact that it lacks meaning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have yet to see the full impact of the open, global marketplace. By 1997 all raw materials and technology will be available everywhere in the world. The only differences between countries and markets will be skill levels, education, and the level of empowerment of the workplace.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature recycles itself. History repeats itself. Religion has faith in itself. Technology creates itself. Humanity loves itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we had had the right technology back then, you would have seen Eva Braun on the Donahue show and Adolf Hitler on Meet the Press.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
`Rock' is the music of slaves. Of adolescents pursuing the illusion of freedom and protest while the steel chains of technology bind them ever tighter.More [07/27/2005 12:07:00]
Gwen: I'm a technopath. I can control technology with my mind.
Will Stronghold: Wow. All I can do is punch stuff.
Mr. Medulla: Yet he'll be the one on cereal boxes. Show me the justice in that.More [08/12/2005 12:08:00]
I'm investing in a company that has patented wallet technology that will deodorize currency. That way people won't have to deal with money that smells funny.More [03/20/2006 12:03:00]
For any new technology there is always controversy and there always some fear associated with it. I think that's just the price of being first sometimes.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]
We're seeing how the videos translate to the live shows and how the technology is really reaching kids.More [06/26/2006 12:06:00]

“I'm happy to have L.A.M.B. participate in the PSP accessories show as I've always loved designing bags and accessories, ... It's all about creativity at the end of the day, whether you're talking about fashion, technology or music, and that's what my L.A.M.B. bags are about.”More [08/17/2006 12:08:00]
“[If these new IT security products work as advertised, they could be a big hit, analysts say.] There's a strong market for managed security services providers who can stay on top of the technology and threats that are changing daily, ... Getting a service provider to relieve that burden from the IT staff has a lot of value for enterprises.”More [10/31/2006 12:10:00]
“The PACE Award is one of the highest honors in the automotive industry. This program recognizes the most advanced supplier innovations and it has become an influential industry benchmark. We now look forward to sharing our award-winning technology with customers for a wide variety of applications.”More [10/31/2006 12:10:00]
I use email now all the time-I'm a complete convert. I've always been one for leaping into technology because I love it but I wasn't sure about email, I couldn't see the advantage over fax and phone at first, apart from the cost.More [11/05/2006 12:11:00]
We have more media than ever and more technology in our lives. It's supposed to help us communicate, but it has the opposite effect of isolating us.More [11/12/2006 12:11:00]
“As a player, I want to know that line calls are as accurate as technology will allow. In that sense, today's announcement is great news for all players.”More [11/15/2006 12:11:00]

James Bond: So, this is where they keep the old relics, then, eh?
Q: I'll have you know our TOP cutting-edge technology is designed here.
James Bond: [fingering a blade] Point taken...
Q: Must you touch everything?
James Bond: [seeing his Thunderball jet pack] Hey, does this still work?

Helinger: Mathematicians won the war. Mathematicians broke the Japanese codes... and built the A-bomb. Mathematicians... like you. The stated goal of the Soviets is global Communism. In medicine or economics, in technology or space, battle lines are being drawn. To triumph, we need results. Publishable, applicable results. Now who among you will be the next Morse? The next Einstein? Who among you will be the vanguard of democracy, freedom, and discovery? Today, we bequeath America's future into your able hands. Welcome to Princeton, gentlemen.More [04/28/2007 12:04:00]
Voiceover: Coming, this summer! It's the digitally enhanced re-release of the very first pilot episode of South Park! Yes, the classic, rough, hand-made first episode is getting a make-over for 2002! The simple, funny aliens are now super badass and cool! Flying saucer? No longer cheap construction paper, but a 4.0 megapixel constructed through a masterpiece of technology! Everything's new! New is better!
Trey Parker: When we first made South Park, we didn't wanna use construction paper. We just had to because it was cheap.
Matt Stone: And now with new technology we can finally remaster South Park, make it look sharp, clean and focused.
Trey Parker: Expensive.
Voiceover: Yes, all the charm of a simple little cartoon will melt before your eyes as it is replaced by newer and more standardized animation!
Trey Parker: For instance, in the scene at the bus stop, we always meant to have Imperial walkers and giant dewback lizards in the background, but simply couldn't afford it.
Voiceover: Get this special enhanced version quick, because another enhanced version will likely be coming out for 2003!More [05/02/2007 12:05:00]
Erica Daley: Hey, how's it going with that virtual reality driving range you wanted to open?
Larry: Getting there. Still waiting for the technology to catch up with the idea. I mean it's not easy, there's a lot of moving parts.More [05/31/2007 12:05:00]
Travis Dane: 300,000 pages of code. Or 60 minutes of triple-X rubber-and-leather bondage porno. Technology can be used for beauty, or debasement. And until you plug it in, you'll just never know.
[Puts the CD-ROM in the drive]
Travis Dane: Oh, oh! I seem to have brought up targeting codes.More [06/15/2007 12:06:00]
Brill: The government's been in bed with the entire telecommunications industry since the forties. They've infected everything.
Brill: They get into your bank statements, computer files, email, listen to your phone calls... Every wire, every airwave. The more technology used, the easier it is for them to keep tabs on you.
Brill: It's a brave new world out there. At least it better be.More [10/12/2007 12:10:00]
Reno: Hey, partner...

Reno: Looks like today we're clockin' out early.More [11/07/2007 12:11:00]
I do not think that there is a reputable scientist on this planet who would advocate using this technology to generate a human child as was just announced. (on the announcement of the birth of the first cloned human)More [12/03/2007 12:12:00]
I think that we do have the technology at present to clone human embryos and it may be a lot easier than many scientists think.More [12/03/2007 12:12:00]
Gus Green: Just think, Joe, a hundred years ago this is how we'd get our boat to the water.
Joe Waters: Yeah.
Gus Green: Yeah and a 1,000 years ago, we wouldn't have paved roads.
Joe Waters: Oh yeah, they'd be full of rocks and everything.
Gus Green: And the boats would be heavier.
Joe Waters: Yeah, now we got the latest technology wood.
Gus Green: Yeah. And just think, a million years ago, we wouldn't have wheels for our trailer!
Joe Waters: We wouldn't even have the freakin' trailer, right Gus?
Gus Green: Yeah.
Joe Waters: And if it was that long ago, our brains would be smaller and we wouldn't think of anything like this.More [12/28/2007 12:12:00]
The combination of hatred and technology is the greatest danger threatening mankind.More [04/04/2008 12:04:00]
The reason is that till date, in spite of advances in information technology and strategies of information, the written word in the form of books still remains one of humanity's most enduring legacies.More [09/22/2008 12:09:00]
Sessom:
It's true that our technology may be further advanced than yours, but then strange things happened.



Capt. Frank Chapman:
What was that?



Sessom:
We let our machines do all our work. People on Rheton became completely free of all labor, practically of all responsibility. Our people became soft and lazy. They did not know how to cope with their free time. They started to fight among themselves.



Capt. Frank Chapman:
That's very interesting. Many people on Earth are beginning to face the same problem: too much free time, too little work.



Capt. Frank Chapman:
A problem not at all unique in the history of the universe.

[climactic showdown]



Col. Muska:
How appropriate that we've ended up in the throne room.


[forcefully]



Col. Muska:
Now get over here!



Sheeta:
This is no longer a throne room. This is a tomb for the both of us. You see, a king without compassion does not deserve a kingdom. You will *never* possess the crystal! You and I will die here, together. Now I understand why the people of Laputa vanished. This is a song from my home in the valley of Gondoa that explains everything. It says, "Take root in the ground, live in harmony with the wind, plant your seeds in the Winter, and rejoice with the birds in the coming of Spring." No matter how many weapons you have, no matter how great your technology might be, the world cannot live without love.


[Muska shoots off Sheeta's pigtail]



Col. Muska:
Laputa will live. I will return it to life! Laputa's power is the dream of all mankind!


[he shoots off her other pigtail]



Col. Muska:
Your ears are next... unless you get on your knees and obey me!


[menacingly]



Col. Muska:
I command you,


[shouts]



Col. Muska:
give me that stone!



Pazu:
Stop right there, Muska!


[appears with a cannon in hand]



Pazu:
I've hidden the stone. If you do anything to harm Sheeta, you'll never get it back.



Sheeta:
No, Pazu, listen! Run away before he kills you as well as me!



Col. Muska:
Look who's here. Why don't you give me the stone, and the girl will live. Otherwise, I'll kill her!


[mockingly]



Col. Muska:
Are you planning on fighting me? Go ahead, use that cannon you can hardly lift!



Pazu:
You can have the stone if you let me talk to Sheeta.



Sheeta:
[with desperate pathos] No, Pazu! Get out of here, and


[shouts]



Sheeta:
throw the crystal away!



Col. Muska:
I'll give you one minute, starting now.

Denis Dimbleby Bagley:
We're living in a shop. The world is one magnificent fucking shop, and if it hasn't got a price tag, it isn't worth having. The Greatest freedom of all is the freedom of choice, and that's the difference between you and me, boil. I was brought up to believe in that, and so should you, but you don't want freedom, do you? You don't even want roads. God I never want to go on another train as long as I live! Roads represent the fundamental right of man to have access to the good things in life. Without roads, established family favorites would become elite as delicacies. Potter's soap would be for the few. There'd be no more tea bags, no instant potatoes, no long life cream. Chewing gum would probably disappear, so would porkpies. There'd be no aerosols, no tin spaghetti, or baked beans with six frankfurters. Foot deodorizers would climax with the hope of replacement! When the hydrolized mono-sodium glutomate reserves ran out, food would rot in its packets. Jesus Christ, there wouldn't be any more packets! Packaging would vanish from the face of the earth. But worst of all, there'd be no more cars, and more than anything, people love their cars. They have a right to them. They have to sweat all day in some stinking factory making disposable cigarette lighters or everlasting Christmas trees, by Christ, they're entitled to them! They're entitled to any innovation technology brings. Whether it's ten percent more of it or fifteen percent off of it. They're entitled to one of four important new ingredients. Why should anyone have to clean their teeth without important new ingredients? Why the hell shouldn't they have their CZT? How dare some smutty Marxist carbunkle presume to deny them it? They love their CZT! They want it, they need it, they positively adore it, and by Christ, while I've got air in my body they're going to get it! They're going to get it bigger - and brighter - and better. I'll put CZT in their margarine if necessary; shove vitamins in their toilet rolls. If happiness means the whole world standing on a double layer of foot deodorizers, I, Bagley, shall see that they get it! By God I will. I shall not cease, till Jerusalem is builded here, on England's green and pleasant lands!

F. Ross Johnson:
Uh huh.



Edward A. Horrigan Jr.:
They all said they tasted like shit.



F. Ross Johnson:
Like shit?



2nd Scientist:
Shit was the consensus, yes sir.



F. Ross Johnson:
They all said that? Nobody liked them?



2nd Scientist:
Fewer than 5%



F. Ross Johnson:
You said the results were gonna be terrific



Edward A. Horrigan Jr.:
Well there's nothing wrong with 5%, Ross, I'll take 5% of the market anytime of the week



F. Ross Johnson:
How much are we into right now?



1st Scientist:
Right now?



F. Ross Johnson:
To date, to here, to now?



1st Scientist:
Upwards of 350.



F. Ross Johnson:
We've spent 350 million dollars and we come up with a turd with a tip? God almighty, Ed! We put enough technology in this project to send a cigarette to the moon and we come up with one that tastes like it took a dump?



Edward A. Horrigan Jr.:
We haven't even talked about the smell.



F. Ross Johnson:
Oh what did they say that was like? A fart?



Edward A. Horrigan Jr.:
Yep.



F. Ross Johnson:
Oh you're not serious! They really said that?



2nd Scientist:
We have an awful lot of fart figures.



F. Ross Johnson:
Tastes like shit and smells like a fart! Got ourselves one hell of a product on our hands it's one unique advertising strategy I'll tell ya that.

That's why we have this. It's the liberal media filter. It was invented in the 1950s by angry gays and Jews who couldn't get work in musical theater. You know all those nice things you said about President Bush?



Jon Stewart:
Yes, all those nice things that I said.



Rob Corddry:
Well, thanks to this filter, they all appear to come out negative.



Jon Stewart:
Is there a conservative media filter?

President:
I address you tonight not as the President of the United States, not as the leader of a country, but as a citizen of humanity. We are faced with the very gravest of challenges. The Bible calls this day "Armageddon" - the end of all things. And yet, for the first time in the history of the planet, a species has the technology to prevent its own extinction. All of you praying with us need to know that everything that can be done to prevent this disaster is being called into service. The human thirst for excellence, knowledge; every step up the ladder of science; every adventurous reach into space; all of our combined modern technologies and imaginations; even the wars that we've fought have provided us the tools to wage this terrible battle. Through all of the chaos that is our history; through all of the wrongs and the discord; through all of the pain and suffering; through all of our times, there is one thing that has nourished our souls, and elevated our species above its origins, and that is our courage. The dreams of an entire planet are focused tonight on those fourteen brave souls traveling into the heavens. And may we all, citizens the world over, see these events through. God speed, and good luck to you.

You've seen how the watch has performed in the test. It's not perfect, but what if I could make it so? What if I could make a timepiece no bigger than the span of a man's hand, that could be taken to sea? Now wouldn't that be a practical solution?


[cut to 20th century]



Rupert Gould:
Harrison's fourth machine, by reason alike of its beauty and its accuracy, must take pride of place as the most famous chronometer that ever has been or ever will be made. But the journey from his third machine, which you see behind me, to his fourth (thank you), is one of the most extraordinary mysteries of horology. Faced as he was by a seemingly insuperable problem of centrifugal forces, Harrison took a daring and lateral leap. It is as though an aeronautical engineer suddenly ceased development on a new aircraft and instead adapted the technology to make his bicycle fly to France.

Narrator:
Long ago, the War of Magi reduced the world to a scorched wasteland, and magic simply ceased to exist. 1,000 years have passed... Iron, gunpowder, and steam engines have been rediscovered, and high technology reigns... But there are some who would enslave the world by reviving the dread destructive force known as "magic". Can it be that those in power are on the verge of repeating a senseless and deadly mistake?

Bruce Wayne:
The suit's sensors aren't picking up any pulse fluctuations. He's telling the truth.

I don't do this anymore. I have a home and family. I gave this up years ago. Kid's stuff. That's all it was.



Terry McGinnis:
He may be telling the truth but he's still whack.



Timothy Drake:
Fun and games. Boy wonder playing hero. Fighting off bad guys and no one ever gets... oh god. I killed him. I didn't mean to. I tried so hard to forget. But I still hear the shot. Still see the dead smile. Every night the dreams get stronger... he's there when I sleep. Whispering! Laughing! Telling me that I'm as bad as he is! We're both the same!



Terry McGinnis:

Timothy Drake:
No. I'm all right. Forgive me Terry, old nasty memories twist inside me like bad oysters. Nothing, really. I'm perfectly fine now.

Terry McGinnis:
Drake, you're The Joker?



The Joker:
That flabby oaf doesn't realize I'm using him as a time share. Beneath this puckish exterior lies the mind of a genius years ahead of my time. In the weeks young Robin was under my tutelage, I used him as the subject of my greatest experiment. Using cutting-edge genetics technology which I pinched here and there, I encoded my DNA in a microchip and set it in Bird Boy's birdbrain.
