A smart manager will establish a culture of gratitude. Expand the appreciative attitude to suppliers, vendors, delivery people, and of course, customers.
The weather here is gorgeous. It’s mild and feels like it’s in the eighties. The hot dog vendors got confused because of the weather and thought it was spring, so they accidentally changed the hot dog water in their carts.
There are 4 billion cell phones in use today. Many of them are in the hands of market vendors, rickshaw drivers, and others who’ve historically lacked access to education and opportunity. Information networks have become a great leveler, and we should use them together to help lift people out of poverty and give them a freedom from want.
I look at my own reservation, the White Earth reservation in northern Minnesota – on my reservation, one quarter of our money is spent on energy. All of that money basically goes to off-reservation vendors whether it is for electricity, or whether it is for fuel.
Fashion is such an octopus. You’re connected to so many people: suppliers, pattern makers, production teams, marketing teams, vendors.
To process and close models in 50 states and 2,000-plus counties with the myriad of, just, tens of thousands of different regulations, customs, vendors – it’s a monster. So the only way to do that is with technology. It really is rocket science.
When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with.
In 1972, there was still a New York City law prohibiting women there from ‘furnishing refreshments to the audience or spectators at any place of public amusement.’ That’s right: Until the law was repealed in 1977, it was technically illegal for women to work as popcorn vendors in Madison Square Garden.
Let your customers be your partners; let your vendors be your employees. What’s necessary in this transformation more than anything else is courage and a willingness to change.

The reason I grew so fast in the supermarket business, without help of the banks in those days, was through my vendors. I convinced my vendors, the companies I was doing business with, if I did more business, they would do more business.
One third of the economy goes through ‘QuickBooks’ in terms of businesses invoicing other businesses. Each invoice contains a connection between vendors, suppliers, and customers, and also the price of that connection. Representing the payment graph is huge opportunity and something no other company can do.
Edible Arrangements will have to beat back some rivals, including a handful of mom-and-pop vendors and a company in Pennsylvania called Incredibly Edible Delites. And there’s always the chance that a deep-pocketed national florist like FTD will decide that pretty produce is profitable and jump into the mix.
Device makers, especially consumer-focused ones, have been the Achilles’ heel of IoT security. These vendors have often viewed proper security implementations as extra cost, complexity, and time-to-market burdens with an unclear payoff.
When I used to return in the early morning after late-night programmes, the first people I see on the roads at the break of dawn are sweepers, newspaper vendors and milkmen. Since they were all from my hometown, I would stop to talk to them before going home. So I am quite used to their lifestyle and work.
It’s not publicly known, but antivirus companies co-operate all the time. On the surface, antivirus vendors are direct competitors. And in fact, the competition is fierce on the sales and marketing side. But on the technical side, we’re actually very friendly to each other. It seems that everyone knows everyone else.
Everything becomes connected, and cyber security becomes the top issue for CEOs. An average company has 40-60 security vendors, and they have a violation every three months with viruses.

I’ve been very happy with the commercial Linux CD-ROM vendors linux Red Hat.
Mr. Speaker, less than 10 percent of our Nation’s children walk or ride their bicycles to school, and too many schools continue to invite fast-food vendors into their cafeterias.
While other state governments stiff their vendors, close parks, delay tax refunds, and ignore unacceptably poor service levels, Indiana state employees are setting national standards for efficiency.
I like the idea of separation of services. ISPs provide a pipe. Other vendors provide security. Other vendors provide email. When one party controls all the services, it’s a ‘synergy’ for the company, but rarely for the consumer.
Technologies and specific vendors may come and go, but massive cultural transformations and new kinds of relationships? Those don’t go away.
When a dish really hits a nerve with the American palate, it can really take off across the entire country, facilitated by food vendors’ freedom to copy good ideas.
I had a long-lasting love affair with the flavors from Japan and the hustling New York street vendors. And, of course, a life-changing return to Ethiopia has made huge impacts on my life in food.
If we want to improve American food and make it much cheaper, we should deregulate the food trucks and the other street vendors, provided they meet certain sanitation standards. Many cities have already moved down this path, and people are not keeling over with salmonella.
Dell fills its computers with crapware, collecting fees from McAfee and other vendors to pre-install ‘trial’ versions.
Experts said public companies worry about the loss of customer confidence and the legal liability to shareholders or security vendors when they report flaws.
The crucial legacy of the personal computer is that anyone can write code for it and give or sell that code to you – and the vendors of the PC and its operating system have no more to say about it than your phone company does about which answering machine you decide to buy.
If stores and vendors know there is a demand for organic products, they will make them. The more they make, the more the cost comes down.
At a lot of companies founded on principles, the notion of making money is almost antithetical to the ethos of the place. From the very beginning, our business has existed to meet the needs and desires of multiple constituencies: customers, team members, vendors, shareholders, the community.
We have responsibility for ONC and the HITECH act. We’ve spent tens of billions on non-interoperable products. It may be time for us to look closer at the activities of vendors in the space, given the possibility that fraud is being perpetrated on the American people.
One’s ability to enter into thousands of lawsuits as a tool for success, or to use bankruptcy to avoid paying your former employees and vendors, have little relevance when trying to create good government.
Not every great idea needs to be Campbell-generated. It’s clear that partners and vendors and other external sources will generate innovative ideas for us.
Every time you see a new paradigm emerge, it’s always new vendors that lead it. I can’t think of one case where an incumbent led a paradigm shift.
When choosing vendors for my wedding, I intentionally searched for women who were at the beginning of their own founder journeys.
As for the endpoint market, vendors such as McAfee and Symantec hold tremendous brand equity due to their consumer products. This of course translates to brand awareness in the enterprise, too.
It’s strange the way Instagram has become a really crazy sourcing opportunity for me. I never thought I’d be saying that, but you see these amazing vendors halfway across the world.
